Original Equipment (O.E.) self-supporting run-flat summer tires are an
appropriate tire choice for sporty vehicles imported to the United States from
Europe and Asia. Developed for use on new cars and light trucks, these tires
offer temporary extended mobility in the event a puncture allows complete
pressure loss, as well as provide a sporty blend of ride quality, noise comfort
and handling, along with dry and wet traction. These tires are not intended to
be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.
Goodyear Extended Mobility Technology (EMT) tires incorporate special
sidewall reinforcements that support the weight of the vehicle even after
sustaining air pressure losses that would render conventional tires immobile.
While internal tire damage will likely make replacement necessary, EMT tires are
designed to endure being run on while flat for up to 50 miles at speeds up to 55
mph and provide drivers the temporary extended mobility necessary to drive
through stormy weather and away from dangerous situations.
Original Equipment self-supporting run-flat summer tires are most often
repurchased as direct replacements for pairs and sets of worn out Original
Equipment tires and EMT tires are only recommended for vehicles originally
equipped with self-supporting run-flat tires and a tire pressure monitoring
While we attempt to provide a picture of as many of these tires as possible,
the pictures used to represent these tires cannot be guaranteed to be an exact
depiction of each tire’s appearance because of the variety of subtle differences
in tread designs and sidewall styling.
