TIRE CARE & MAINTENANCE
Goodyear has also developed Run On Flat® & Extended Mobility Technology™ tires. These tires are for use while losing inflation pressure or even when fully deflated. Vehicle operation in a deflated condition is restricted to a maximum speed of 50-mph/80-kph for up to 50-mi./80-km. They may provide weight and space savings. If you'd like to find out if your vehicle has Run On Flat or Extended Mobility Technology tires, use our search by vehicle tool.
It's important to remember a few guidelines before driving on a spare tire:
- Make sure your spare tire has been properly inflated
- Inspect the tire for damages or punctures to the tread and sidewall regularly
- Watch your speed –follow the instructions from your vehicle and tire manufacturer regarding your speed as well as driving distance
- Remember that a spare tire (other than a full size matching spare tire) is a temporary solution that should be used only to get you to a service station safely
Chances are, if you need to use your spare tire, you'll need to know how to change the flat. Goodyear offers additional detailed information on how to fix and change a flat tire and the tools that you’ll need.
