Tire that takes a hit – once and for all
Have you seen the Bridgestone TV ad, (featuring a BMW), for their Run Flat tires? It’s a dramatic example that demonstrates how the tires can take a large nail and not deflate. Run flat all-season tires are available or standard on many of the 2009 BMW’s.
Keep in mind that these tires are not repairable, as is the case of some tire punctures. The idea is that you can safely drive to a place where you can get a replacement. It beats trying to change a tire in the heat, snow, rain, or whatever, on the side of the freeway. OK, so you just call the tow driver if you have a flat.(Have mercy)
