TYRON Flat Tyre

Does anyone have experience with this type of tire? Would you advise purchasing? Seems like a very safe alternative, especially when you are rolling down the road at 60-70MPH.

Did you put them on your car? After all, you probably drive that more miles - and faster - than your RV.

The downside of Tyron, other than the high cost, is that it makes getting a tire replaced or repaired difficult. Special equipment is required and few shops other than Tyron dealers have it. You should probably carry it with you, along with instructions how to use it.

Found out I had the Tyron bands when I put tires on mine. Tire shop didn't know what they were, I didn't, they made a tool (Allen wrench) stuck it in a drill and loosened them, put my tires on and tightened them. No big deal. I later found that I had the Allen head tool in my owners manual boxes.

If I had them, I'd retain them, and be sure I had instructions and tools to support tiring changing while traveling.

I do believe the add a degree of extra safety.

But I have not bought them. Considered it, and decided that maintain good quality tires, properly aired, and with a TPMS - was reasonable enough preventative measures. The one area that I would not be covered with, that they would aid in, is in a catastrophic blowout tire failure. I'm betting, and yep it is a bet, that that would only happen if I hit some road debris. And I do the best I can to know what our tires are rolling over, if I can not avoid debris, I get prepared as anyone can for a sudden blowout.

I myself, and have my wife too, review the Michelin Blow Out video yearly. It is so instinctive to back off of the gas pedal, that we both occasional remind ourselves of 'What do you do in case of a blowout?' - accelerate until you get control...

If funds were unlimited, I'd consider them, as they do add extra safety.

A decision that each must make.
