Tyron Bands

I was wondering if you could tell me what are Tyron Bands and what do they actually do? Would be most grateful for any information that you could give me. Kind regards.

Tyron bands are a simple but effective safety device used on tyres. They are fitted to most police traffic cars and emergency vehicles, and are a brilliant safety device when used on caravan tyres.

They work by keeping the tyre on the wheel in the event of a puncture or blow-out, which will allow you time to drive to a safe place and stop to change the wheel. Without them the tyre would come off the rim causing the wheel rim to come into contact with the road.
