ZP: The side of the road is not a fun place. In fact, it can be dangerous. Thankfully, there’s the run flat technology. Run flat tyres allow you to drive for a limited distance and reduced speed after a puncture or other event which caused either a drop in tyre inflation pressure or a complete loss of air pressure. For example, MICHELIN® Zero Pressure (ZP) tyres provide run-flat technology that allows you to drive up to 50 miles at 50 mph with a flat tyre.
