Run-flat tyres

Play it safe: with run-flat tyres fitted, you are on the safe side. Because if one of the tyres loses air, the vehicle can be driven on at a speed of 80 km/h for up to another 50 kilometres if partially loaded or 30 kilometres fully loaded.

Classic Audi – innovative technologies for greater safety: with 245/45 R17 run-flat tyres fitted you are on the safe side. Even if the tyre has lost air and is running at zero pressure, it is still safe to drive on. You can continue for up to 50 kilometres partially loaded. With a full load you can cover 30 kilometres. And drive at a speed of 80 km/h. Fast enough to quickly get you to a safe lay-by or car park, where you can change the wheel safely in your own time.

Note: the 245/45 R17 run-flat tyres are only available in conjunction with cast aluminium wheels, size 8 J x 17 with 5-spoke Y-design or cast aluminium wheels, size 8 J x 17 with 7-spoke star design.
