Cool Blow outs

Many of us have experienced the dreaded blowout. Now there's a product on the market called TYRON, flat tire protection. This may not be cheap, but it will prevent further damage and may possibly allow you to avoid causing an accident. We opted for this with our new rig.

TYRON will keep the trailer up, but what happens if the tread separates?

What was the approximate cost?

There's no known damage prevention from a tire that is coming apart.
It's spinning at a high rate of speed- the wheels well of most RVs are made
of beer can metal and pop rivets. If the tread is flopping around on a
blown tire the wheel well is gonna take a pounding Tyron or not.

Beer cans? You must have the upgraded model.

Ahh, to those who say there's "no known damage prevention......" That means to some there's no known way! Please look Tyron up on Google. This is NOT a FR option.

They don't keep the tread on the tire from separating which is what causes the damage.

I am assuming you have the band that goes around the "well" in the rim?
If you also have a TPMS it might do some good, but otherwise I don't see it.
Even with this in place, if a tire goes down, the sidewalls will shred and the tire tread will beat your camper to death.
Or if the tread separates without going flat, the same will happen. Of course, in that case, a TPMS won't help either. But I would guess that is a rare occurrence.
A true "run-flat" tire for campers would be an awesome option. Coupled with a TPMS, that would all but eliminate the destructive tire explosions.

At least with a TPMS you will know there is an immediate problem.
