Why is TPMS Important?

Why is TPMS Important?The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is designed to alert drivers of tire problems via a dashboard indicator light that looks similar to ( ! ). The system monitors air pressure and tire temperature and will signal drivers if one or more tires are found to be out of specification by 25 percent of more, according to manufacturer recommendations. So why is the TPMS so important to you?

Improved Handling

Tires that are overinflated or underinflated can cause numerous handling issues. Tires that are overinflated will not have the correct footprint, making it more difficult to control your car. Underinflated tires can cause pulling or drifting, which is a very unsafe issue to have with any vehicle.

Reduced Accident Risk

As mentioned improperly inflated tires can cause handling issues. These problems can potentially result in accidents. By paying attention to the TPMS and getting your vehicle in for service when the light comes on will help reduce your chances of being involved in a tire problem related wreck.

Increase Tire Life

Your car or truck's tires need to be properly inflated to get the most life out of them. Some tire manufacturers state that a tire just 5 psi below recommended pressure could lessen the tire's tread life by as much as 25%.

Improved Fuel Economy

Underinflated tires can drop fuel economy by about .3% for every 1 psi drop in all four tires. By keeping your tires fulling inflated with help from the TPMS your car will continue to get the best fuel economy possible.
