KIRSEHIR, Turkey — Petlas Tire Corp. has expanded its run-flat sizes for ultra-high performance line, PT741, adding four sizes.
The four new sizes (245/40R20 reinforced; 285/35R18; 285/35R19 and 225/35R 20 reinforced), increase the number of PT741 sizes available to 33.
According to the Turkish manufacturer, these tires have the ability to resist the effects of deflation even when punctured. Their reinforced sidewalls continue to support the vehicle's movement even when the pressure is lost. Petlas said its run-flat tires proved can be used up to 120 miles without having any integrity problems.
Petlas said its run-flat technology improves driving safety by avoiding loss of steering control in case of a sudden loss of pressure.
