We have several Run Flat Tire Insert systems to choose from, as well as custom manufactured wheels for armored vehicles, or vehicles with heavy load applications. You will find a brief description of each above. Click on the links for a full description of each system.
Any Armored Vehicle that you have seen from Government Armored Limousines, Bodyguard Vehicles, U.N.Vehicles, Police SWAT Trucks etc. most likely have a set of Rodgard Run Flat Tire Inserts installed on them. For over 20 years Rodgard Run Flat Tire Inserts have protected Presidents, Government Agents, Dignitaries, Heads of State, Ambassadors, Rock and Movie Stars, and others.
Rodgard Run Flat Tire Inserts are made from lightweight, high strength polyester elastomers comprised of two components, a roller and a runner. The runner is securely attached to the wheel in the drop center, and provides a track or channel in which the roller is allowed to move or “rotate” about the wheel at the same speed as the tire, thus reducing friction and heat build up.
RODGARD Run Flat Tire Insert Systems are available in the following Sizes: 13″, 14″, 15″, 16″, 17″, 17.5″, 18″, 19.5″, 20″ and 22.5″.The Run Flat Tire Insert Systems are designed to give a minimum “Run Flat” distance of 10 miles (15 kilometers) with the Get-A-Way systems and up to 93 miles (150 kilometers) with the Super Standard Systems for Heavy Duty Military Applications.
How it Works:
When operating in a “Run Flat” mode, the Run Flat Tire Insert provides support to hold the tire tread and sidewall off the wheel rim. Specifically, the tire engages the roller that rotates freely on the runner secured to the wheel. Without a Run Flat Tire Insert, the tire will quickly be destroyed and or come off the wheel, either case causing immobility. By keeping the tire off the rim, the Run Flat Tire Insert effectively prolongs the life of the tire allowing for continued vehicle operation and maneuverability.
Importance of the Patented Runner-Roller Concept: This concept provides two separate elements essential to maximum performance. 1. Support for the Run Flat Tire Insert on the wheel. 2. An efficiently designed bearing surface for the roller to rotate on.
The independent roller allows the tire to rotate at the same rate as the wheel, minimizing heat build up. The runner is molded to match the wheel drop center profile, therefore maximizing the support of the Run Flat Tire Insert and providing an exact fit to the wheel. The proper fit of any Run Flat Tire Insert system to the wheel drop center area is essential for maximum performance and safety!
The unique bearing interface between the runner and roller includes a specially designed lubricating system that remains in place throughout the life of the Run Flat Tire Insert during normal operation. This insures permits free rotation and maximum performance during “Run Flat” Mode.
Unique Hardware Design: Our connecting hardware is designed for ease of use and secure fitment assuring you of proper Run Flat Tire Insert installation. Our hardware is adjustable to accommodate tolerance variations in manufactured wheels, something our competitors do not offer. Any tire or automotive shop with standard tire changing equipment can be used for installation. Pricing and sales are limited to 2012 to 2020 year vehicles years only! (Minimum order is one set of 4 wheels.)
