Combat the Flat: Self-Sealing Tires are Here

Sponsored by Hankook Tire USA

There’s nothing worse than being on a road trip and having your “low air pressure” warning light pop up on your dashboard, sending the alert that you have a flat tire. Well, thanks to Hankook’s SEALGUARD® technology, a punctured tire doesn’t always have to equate to a flat tire.

Hankook’s SEALGUARD® tires use self-sealing technology to temporarily repair punctured tires, bringing added safety and reliability to drivers. So, how does it work?

Containing a tacky, viscous material coated inside from shoulder to shoulder, SEALGUARD® tires can immediately seal punctures up to 5mm in diameter caused by nails and other objects, reducing the need for emergency tire-changes.
While SEALGUARD® technology does not guarantee permanent repair of the tire, the tire can maintain consistent air pressure even if the puncturing object has become dislodged. Hankook recommends that drivers with SEALGUARD® tires regularly check their tires to inspect sealed punctures or the presence of other damage.

By helping to reduce the hazards of emergency curbside tire changes, SEALGUARD® tires can help to provide added safety and peace of mind to drivers. Hankook SEALGUARD® technology is currently available in the Ventus S1 noble 2 pattern in sizes 255/40R20, 285/35R20. Size expansion options are in continuous development.
