Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems and Driver Safety

Keep yourself, your loved ones, and those around you safe with TPMS!

In the U.S. as of 2008 and in the E.U. as of 2012, all new models of passenger cars must be equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system. The passing of the TREAD act has helped all members of the transportation community realize that visual inspections and “tire-kicking” are not adequate means of checking tire pressure. Using TPMS to maintain tire pressure can ensure increased fuel efficiency, extended tire life, decreased maintenance, improved stability and handling, decreased emissions, and most importantly, greater safety for the driver, the vehicle, and others on the road.
Under inflated tires are the #1 cause of tire failure and contribute to a variety of tire problems including: heat buildup, fly separation, and sidewall/casing breakdowns. Running your tires on inadequate pressure breaks down casing and can eventually lead to tread separation.
For your safety, the safety of your loved ones, and those around you, please don’t skip on installing TPMS on your vehicle or replacing damaged sensors. Let’s exercise caution and make the world a safer place to drive for our generation and future generations to come!
