Run Flat Tyre Confusion

Recently there seems to have been a bit of confusion when it comes to run flat tyres and whether it is ok to replace them with non-run flats.

Run flat tyres are not only a innovative way to keep on driving in the cases of tyre failure but, they are also a vital part of the suspension system and handling capabilities of a car which has been designed around run flat tyre technology. If a non run flat tyre is fitted on such a car, these very important components then become significantly impaired. This increases the chances of the driver being involved in an accident.

Over the years there have been numerous leaflets handed out to garages and retailers from the National Tyre Distribution Association (NTDA) explaining that in certain cases and on certain vehicles run flat rims are specifically designed to only work with run flat tyres.

Should Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems Become Man

There are many manufacturers that already use this technology on their vehicles. It is most common on cars that have been designed around the use of run flat tyre technology.  With the cost of TPMS reaching around the £250 mark, there have been many stern warnings from nearly all car manufacturers indicating that prices are set to rise when the new piece of legislation comes into play.

It is not only the car manufacturers that see this new law as a bad thing. Autoexpress.co.uk have quoted Vanessa Guyll, technical specialist at The AA, as saying, "It will increase costs. And if you have to replace a tyre then the system will need to be reset, and you’ll have to buy a new valve sensor.”

The autoexpress.co.uk article also has Vanessa Guyll going on to question the safety aspects of the TPMS. She said, “They’re good in principle but they’re not a replacement for regularly checking your tyres. They don’t catch problems such as uneven wear and bulges.”

Tire, solid waste industries differ with environme

WASHINGTON—The proposal by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to reclassify tire-derived fuel and other nontraditional, nonhazardous fuels as solid wastes pleases environmentalists—and just about no one else.

Representatives from the tire and cement industries, and state solid waste management officials, solidly line up against the plan, judging from comments submitted to the EPA on the proposed rule. They maintain the regulations would end the use of tires as fuel.

The agency’s three proposed rules—totaling 860 manuscript pages—aim to reduce emissions of mercury and other pollutants from industrial, commercial and institutional boilers and solid waste incinerators. If it becomes law, the regulations would redefine TDF and other nonhazardous materials as solid waste, which means any unit that burned them would have to be classified as solid waste incinerators under the Clean Air Act.
