Recommended Products - TYRON® - runflat tyre safety system
Tyron is a type of runflat system that is fitted to the wheel of a vehicle after the tyre has been fitted, to prevent loss of control during a tyre blow out situation.
With TYRON® fitted, you have the piece of mind knowing that you can remain in control and mobile, should your tyre deflate - at any speed - on any surface. It greatly reduces the risk of accident and fatality through loss of control after tyre deflation and provides traction plus a short runflat or get-out capability. Allowing the driver to continue to a safe place to change the wheel. This is how it works:
Loss of control is caused when air pressure is lost from the tyre and the beads become detached from the flange seat of the wheel and drop down into the wheel well
Under zero inflation pressure, the bead of the tyre has dropped into the well of the wheel resulting in loss of control of the vehicle Picture right: The Tyron system is a steel band that is fitted to the wheel that in effect closes off the area that the tyre would drop into under the above condition.
