Run Flat Tyres (RFT) has become increasingly popular in the recent years with more and more car manufacturers are offering RFT for newly launched cars. The rationale behind having a RFT installed is that changing a puncture tyre has become such a drag, and punctures always seem to find us at such an unwelcome timing.
In the event of a puncture, RFT allows you to drive continuously for a certain distance at a reduced speed without the need of stopping your vehicle to replace the tyre. Basically, with RFT, you do not have to worry about replacing your tyre in an unsafe condition. Unlike conventional tyres, you will have to stop your journey and replace the tyre immediately or wait till the tow truck comes. Besides, RFT are essentially more stable compare to conventional tyres when a puncture or blowup occurs due to its firm structure.
Although RFT does comes in handy during punctures, it does has some disadvantages too. Not many workshop offers RFT on their shelves, if you are in the outskirt, you probably need to turn back to your car manufacturer to replace the RFT. Besides, RFT is priced relatively higher compare to conventional tyres. As having RFT installed on your vehicle might be a sound idea, to replace a RFT is still a hassle.
However, the frustration and hassle can be reducing by just using TyreCare Sealant on conventional tyres.

Although it requires a DIY process as you will have to manually pump the sealant into the tyre, there is no need for you to jack, unscrew or replace the tyre for as long as the sealant is in the tyre. Besides, by using TireCare Sealant on conventional tyres, it is much more cost effective compare to having RFT.
To sum up, both RFT and conventional tyres with TireCare Sealant in it has its own advantages and disadvantages.
