Features

  • The solid, sturdy central ribs, attached tread lugs, plus asymmetrical tread ribs ensure optimum, longitudinal stiffness in the tire and reduced movement in the tread. This means steering forces are transmitted straight to the road.
  • A supple macro-block design on the outer shoulder and solid central ribs, ensure that the tire adapts perfectly to the road surface. Particularly during fast cornering the contact patch is increased. The driver receives excellent feedback when approaching the limit and the tyre provides outstanding grip with maximum stability.
  • Black Chilli Technology is a specially developed compound technology involving an innovative type of racing grade carbon black, which ensures a speedy warm-up process and greater stability. The polymers in the compound are reinforced with nanoparticles, making them extremely supple. Thus they provide more contact points with the road, so grip is substantially enhanced and the tyre far more stable. In addition, special grip resins provide optimum interlocking with both wet and dry roads, thus achieving shorter braking distances.
  • Rolling resistance-optimised ‚cap and base' tread.
  • The two tread components - ‚cap' and ‚base' - complement the balanced compound concept and ensure good grip in the wet, whilst at the same time providing short braking distances and reduced rolling resistance.
  • The ‚cap', on the outside, provides good grip in the wet and short braking distances, whilst the ‚base', on the inside, reduces rolling resistance. Together they achieve more positive road grip and retain kinetic energy, whilst simultaneously ensuring high safety.
Benefits and Advantages
  • Perfect steering precision and sporty handling.
  • Outstanding grip and stability during cornering.
  • Short braking distances on both wet and dry roads.

Can you use this on a mondeo?

I wouldn't recommend run flats if your car doesn't need them. I found it makes the handling worse and has a lot less give over speed bumps and pot holes.

I got the runflats off my car at the first opportunity. They are only needed if your car doesn't have a spare.

I woudlnt worry about your wheels getting damaged, but it is harder for the tyre guy to remove due to the sidewall.

Personally i avoid runflats like the plague. Horrible, horrible tyre.
And i know i was corrected last time i commented on a run flat thread by several people who know somebody who knows somebody who knows everything that disagrees with this;
A car either will or should be setup to run on runflats. They are heavier and stiffer than normal tyres, you do not swap between them on 'generic' setup and expect the car to behave the same. And of course, any car setup to actually run on them will suffer some unpleasant comprimises.
I for one prefer run flats. I have used them for many years and the latest generation of RFTs are much more forgiving. The difference between Michelin PIlot Sport ZPs and the awful Bridgestone RE050s is like night and day. The convenience of being able to continue your journey (up to 40 miles) is important to me and more so for my wife. Having said that on one occasion she decided to inform me the warning symbol on the dash was illuminated, I asked her for how long it’s been like that she replied ‘about a month’ 😳

Yeah it's fine.
Sadly not available for my 205/40 ZR17

5.25% TCB too.

Looks good to me. Might be worth sticking that they're SportContact 5's in the description. Had these on a couple of cars in the past and really rated them. Have some heat!

Agree. Was thinking to only add them at the back tyres. It's only because of the price tbh. Very good price for good tyres

Different question - in general, run-flats are not considered suitable for cars without tyre-pressure monitoring. The reason is that run-flat is mostly about 'getting-you home safely' than letting you drive for far/at speed with low tyre pressure. That said, if ATS website says they're suitable for your car or doesn't give any warnings about them not being suitable, I'd probably go for it with these.

Had a mondeo with the back tyres RF. Run them for over 1000 miles on motorway with a fist hole in them. True story. That's my reason of going for run flats.
As of the rim problems, well a good tyre fitter wont have any problems but a bad one will start complaining about how hard it is. The hate ringlets cause it's hard to put on(fitters) but there are always some benefits next to the bad bits.

No I have 2 bmw which are factory fitted run flats, never has problems when I've has to change them, I had puncture on the moterway at 70 mph, but didn't really notice until tyre pressure light came up in dash, saved me a lot hassle having not to stop carried driving without problems, had it replaced when I could. As a safety issue these are life saver. The ride is harder and it's more off stiifer drive tho.
I agree with some of the posts above relating to the ride quality with run flat tyres. I’ve recently swapped out my 19” RFTs for Pilot Sport 4S (non RF) all round and the difference in both the ride quality and the handling is night and day. Once you’ve made the switch you really can tell.

RFT certainly compromise the ride quality (a lot), you do really feel every bump in the road. RFTs are also a lot noisier. The car feels a lot lighter with non RFTs too (oh, also RFTs traditionally wear a lot quicker than their non RF counterparts and are also more expensive to replace).

I would advice those with RFTs to switch to non RFTs and carry a puncture repair kit. If you don’t require RFTs, I certainly wouldn’t recommend going for them. I appreciate this may not be feasible for many but it’s purely a recommendation as I was first skeptical of the difference between the two myself.

Had these on our 1 series last year. Never again! I thought a wheel bearing had gone on the front. Horrendous road noise above 40 mph. Don’t know if they were a bad batch but were far to noisy.
First thing I did when I bought My car is get rid of Run Flats as they give a terrible ride
Must say though these are cheap.
So if You can put up with the ride why not
Have the 19 inch version of these on my c-class. Can't fault them, just changed after 20k miles. This is a real bargain.

There is a constant debate about runflats ride experience on all sorts of car forums. Bottom line people forget is they were designed like many other German car features about increasing your safety. Especially reassuring if on a motorway and there is a high risk of ploughing into another driver.

Probably because they're made from a good quality rubber. Imagine having a tyre that lasts say 50k it would be slippery and hard
Damn, I don't need tyres now these are my size!!

The handling with these will be better than with any similarly priced Chinese budget tyre...
Cheap but runflats are AWFUL. Switch to regular tyres if you can, you’ll thank me.

Yeah... they’re still awful. Swapped Conti for Conti on my BMW and it was night and day!
Any 19s pls?
Incredible price, I would have had these but my tyres are 235 not 225! I paid this price for some cheapo brand just to ensure the lease car is returned in a definitely roadworthy condition. What sort of cars have this size tyre?
245/45 R19's at £59.99 as well.........shame I don't need any right now!
Fantastic price, 45 profile is seemingly never on offer.

I ditched my run flats (225/45/18) on my Cooper S Countryman (and the OEM alloys as they were knackered) for Avon ZV7s - the ride is much better but they cost more than this!
Your insurer would not like it in case of accident if car didn't come with run flat factory fitted
