Run-Flat Certified Run-Flat Certified

  • Because of the advanced technology and design of RFT tyres and the required tyre pressure monitoring systems (TPMS), Bridgestone Firestone Run-Flat Certified Retailers, such as  Healys  Firststop Tyre Centre Naas , have staff specially trained to sell and service RFT tyres.
    Run-Flat Certified Retailers have the necessary equipment and are specially trained to properly mount and demount RFT tyres and to handle TPMS devices. Conventional mounting equipment may irreparably damage RFT tires and an improper repair is unsafe and will void the Limited Warranty. Accordingly, it is important to go to a Bridgestone Firestone Run-Flat Certified Retailer for tyre maintenance and replacement.  Run-Flat Certied Retailers will fully inspect your tyre, inside and out, to determine if the tyre can be repaired. Tyre damage is not always visible from the outside and the tyre must be removed from the wheel for a complete inspection.
