Flat Tires? No problem...keep on driving....
guys, i came across this link while doing some browsing on the Net. Goodyear has come out with these range of tires called "Run on Flat". They claim that you can run your car atleast 50 miles after you notice the flat and without sacrificing on confort etc. Though i couldn't go through it thoroughly, i thought it could be some help for TBHP members.
I wonder when Good Year would launch them in India.

And they wont serve any pupose on Indian roads. the sidewalls on thse tyres are so damn hard, the only thing that'd break down would be your back.

Run flats are lousy on all roads except german and swiss.
You better have awesome suspension to run 'run flats' . Their ride is too harsh. you would be feeling every expansion joint in the road
