Why use a Flat Tire Defender?
When riding off road, a flat tire can ruin your day and lead to costly repairs of the tire, rim and other vehicle components.
ATV ‘Flat Tire Defender’ Inserts *
Designed for Off-Road Use Only!
Tire pressure can be adjusted to suit the riders need and the terrain just like normal with FTD ATV Inserts. The foam inserts are only in use when the tire is compressed or a puncture occurs. ATV Inserts are NOT designed as a Run Flat system (tire without air). They are intended to protect the tire and rim in the event of a tire puncture and allow you to ride at a reduced speed to your pit, camp or transport vehicle to make necessary repairs. Until a tire puncture occurs, FTD ATV Inserts ride inside the tire casing and regular air pressure supports your tire sidewall, so you can adjust pressure as you need just like normal!
4x4 All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV) - Flat Tire Defender Inserts are designed to assist in carrying the vehicle load on the tire sidewall in the event of a tire puncture. Materials consisting of open cell, high impact, and high density foam help to support the height and width of 4x4 ATV tires. If a tire puncture occurs, FTD Inserts assist in keeping the tire bead from coming off the rim and help prevent additional tire and rim damage by supporting the tire sidewall load.
Sport All-Terrain Vehicle (2-WD) – Unlike 4x4 ATV’s, the lower tire sidewalls and lighter vehicle weight of the 2-Wheel Drive Sport puts less pressure on the tire sidewalls. Lower air pressure than normal can be used in conjunction with FTD inserts for ultimate traction! The FTD Inserts provide tire and rim protection and increased stability . If a puncture does occur they assist in keeping the tire bead from coming off the rim and help prevent tire and rim damage. These materials consist of open cell, high impact, and lower density foam allowing the tire to follow the terrain consistently and improve traction.
