Pirelli's run flat tyres are engineered to run a low or no pressure to enable the driver to reach a place of safety, or even complete the journey. In the case of a punctured tyre, tyres are designed to run distances of up to 80km at a maximum speed of 80km/h.
A Load Index of 97 and Speed Rating Y indicates the tyre can carry a load of 730 kg at a maximum speed of 300 km/h .

BRIDGESTONE ER300 RFT 22555R17
The Turanza ER300 is designed to combine traction, handling and comfort in dry and wet conditions. It molds a tread compound into an asymmetric tread design. Large tread blocks and continuous circumferential ribs provide responsive handling and traction on dry roads, while lateral and circumferential tread grooves help evacuate water from under the tyre's footprint to enhance wet traction and reduce hydroplaning. The tyre's internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by spiral wrapped aramid and nylon to stabilize the tread area to enhance handling and high-speed capability.
