Ready to Take on Rain Slicked Roads?

Rain season is here. Are you ready to navigate rain slicked pavement? The chances of getting into an accident greatly increase when driving on wet pavement. Various factors are affected by under or overinflated tires – steering, handling, traction, comfort, and overall vehicle control (all of which are vital when driving in rainy conditions).

Let’s make the road a safer place for all drivers by exercising proper tire and tire pressure maintenance. For more information on how to greatly reduce your chances of getting into a car accident during the rainy season, please go to:

2013 Volvo S80 and XC70 recalled for TPMS software error

Some 300 2013 Volvo S80 sedans and XC70 wagons are being recalled by Volvo due to TPMS software errors. What happens is that the tire pressure monitoring system would display “TPMS Service Required” on the vehicle dash even if the pressure in the tires are inflated to vehicle specifications. This error can pose a real problem to drivers since it prevents the TPMS system from accurately alerting the driver if one or more tires is actually underinflated.

Schrader Unveils New TPMS Solution for Heavy Duty Vehicles: OTR

Schrader has announced its new solution to heavy-duty vehicle tire pressure monitoring: the Off-The-Road (OTR) tire pressure monitoring system. This TPMS system is designed to measure and transmit critical tire performance data in heavy-duty machinery such as: port vehicles, construction vehicles, earthmoving vehicles, and mining vehicles. Tire pressure and temperature data is transmitted to both the drivers and fleet managers, allowing for better on-site operational performance and critical decision making.
