These tires should be able to carry you for fifty to seventy miles/hour as per the road condition. These are usually used in the dangerous circumstances to escape from any mishap.  Even when the tires are badly attacked, the vehicle should be able to drive a few kilometres at a required speed. The run flat tires are said to run an adequate distance when needed to leave or escape from hazardous place to a safer zone.
