Flat Run tyre technology
Nokian FRT (Flat Run Technology) is a special tyre construction for car tyres. It allows for driving a tyre with FRT even without tyre pressure. Some car manufacturers only use these kinds of tyres on their cars to ensure safe driving to the dealership after accidental damage.
Nokian FRT tyres have stronger construction than normal tyres. The sidewalls have a special component to provide extra stiffness to the sidewalls when driving on a flat tyre. At normal pressure, FRT tyres operate like normal tyres.
Driving on Nokian Flat Run tyres
You can drive approximately 50 kilometres on a flat tyre, if the car is fully loaded. If the car is only carrying the driver, the transition drive can be up to 150 kilometres.
Nokian Tyres recommends a maximum speed of 80 kilometres per hour. Under very slippery conditions, the speed should be kept at approximately 50 km/h.
For safety reasons, run flat tyres can only be mounted on cars equipped with air pressure monitoring that is integrated into the IT system, or some other system that warns of changes in tyre pressure changes, and a driving stability management system (ESP).
