SSR Runflat Continental Tires

Only buy new SSR tires from certified specialist tire dealers.

Tyres featuring SSR run-flat technology are increasingly in dem& in the replacement market. Motorists should, however, make sure that the specialist tire dealer or workshop is certified to fit these special tires. Fitting requires additional expertise, which is why the tire manufacturers run training courses at the end of which staff receive a certificate. SSR tires with run-flat technology may only be fitted to vehicles equipped with a Tire Pressure Warning System. There are two technologies existing:

1)     Direct measuring systems with a pressur sensor in the tire (TPMS = Tire Pressure Monitoring System).

2)     Indirect measuring systems that receive the tire pressure from ABS signals (DDS = Deflation Detection System).
