CWHTRAINS....When TYRON was first introduced to the U.S., it was first sold and demonstrated in Los Angeles. I assisted in the demonstrations by blowing holes in the tire sidewalls while the owner drove the car through a large parking lot at 60 mph. He would continue to drive the car around at high speeds until all that was left was the tire sidewalls.

How it works....Wheels have a deep grove in the center to allow the tire bead to slip onto the rim. Once the tire is completely on the rim, one side is depressed and the TYRON is bolted over the groove in the center of the rim. The tire can no longer come off of the rim because the tire bead cannot move into the groove. The tire can still come apart, but the sidewalls will stay on and generally protect the rim.

My Department bought about 3000 units and alot of high end car dealers bought and sold them as aftermarket safety items. The system is used on all British military and police vehicles.

I think if you have a blowout and are able to get off of the road fairly quickly, there would be no need for the TYRON. They would probably most effective on a blowout with an aluminum wheel that would be damaged in a run flat situation. I know they're pretty pricey....$500.00 -800.00.

Don,

Thanks for the explanation of the TYRON. I've heard of them in the past but never really thought about the system.

It's amazing in iRV2 we have such diversity in outmembers backgrounds and how folks are able to share their experiences.

Local dealer wants $1,295 to have them installed on the front wheels. Just seems like a lot of money. I have watched the videos and read the material on the web site. I just have a hard time paying that much money for in essence two plastic/metal bands mounted around the interior of a rim.

IMHO, the Tyron Wheel Bands will benefit the dealer a lot more than the purchaser!
