Asked by John Morell

WHY don't they make puncture-proof tyres, which would be a safety asset on dark, wet, country roads, particularly for women and older drivers who have trouble changing a flat tyre.

I GUESS because tyre companies haven't yet worked out how to make a tyre puncture-proof without reverting to the solid rubber tyres used before the invention of the pneumatic tyre early last century. The closest we've come is run-flat tyre that is fitted to the latest BMW 3-Series.
