Some of today’s vehicles don’t come with a spare and instead may be equipped with run-flat tires. Manufacturers do this to reduce weight, improve fuel efficiency, and provide more cargo space.

Run-flat technology is designed to help keep you in control even after losing all or most of the air in your tire. Like standard tire technology, run-flat tires do require air pressure to maintain peak performance. What isn’t required is a spare in your trunk or attached to the underside of your vehicle.

Some run-flat tires can be driven without air for up to 50 miles at up to 50 miles per hour — just enough to get to your local Les Schwab for a repair or replacement.

Learn how run-flat tires work and what sets them apart here.
