What’s Inside a Bulletproof Runflat Tire?

June 17, 2019 2 Min read

You may find yourself under attack and your tires have been blown out, or you have simply ran over a nail that has punctured your tire, forcing you to be stuck on the side of the road. Run-flat tire inserts from Armormax can safely carry you for 50+ miles (80+ kilometers) at approximately 70 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) – depending on road conditions.

This is generally far more than adequate to escape a dangerous situation and flee to a “safe zone”. We highly recommend any individual who faces a threat to be properly equipped with armoring and run-flat tire inserts, in order to escape threatening situations, and return safely back to work or to their families.

In the event of a blowout or puncture, run-flat inserts on your tires can help you:

  1. Continue to operate the vehicle
  2. Minimize the damage to the vehicle
  3. Reduce the risk of injury to yourself and others
