A Personal Tire Pressure Monitoring System: What Is It?


Proper tire pressure is crucial for safe and effective driving because it impacts the vehicle's handling, braking, and efficient fuel usage. A Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) lets you know if there is significant underinflation by monitoring the air pressure inside each of your tires.

What are the Advantages of a Tire Pressure Monitoring System?

 1. Increased road safety

Increased road safety is one of the most significant benefits of having a TPMS. Even if it is true that blowouts and underinflated tires are not the primary cause of traffic accidents and deaths, they are nonetheless a contribution. (https://www.gao.gov/assets/gao-07-246r.pdf)

What are the dangers of driving with significantly underinflated tires?

  1. Decreased braking performance

  2. Reduced handling and traction

  3. An increased risk of blowouts and other tire failures

 2. Increased fuel economy

The cost of gasoline, for example, is a concern today. Increased fuel economy is another advantage of a TPMS.

What are the dangers of underinflated tires concerning fuel economy?

  1. Increased rolling resistance

  2. Decreased gasoline efficiency and higher gas prices

3. Decreased tire wear and tear

The use of a TPMS can also reduce tire wear and tear. This system can identify alignment and suspension issues by keeping track of tire pressure.

How do underinflated tires contribute to wear and tear?

  1. Shorten lifetime

  2. Increased maintenance costs

  3. Increased replacement costs

A personal tire pressure monitoring system, such as Hypertech's TPMS + Booster, allows you to simplify tire pressure and temperature monitoring on your cars, trucks, and trailers. This system is perfect for you if you want to monitor the tire pressure on your vehicle, even if it doesn't come with a factory-installed TPMS, or if you want to monitor the tire pressures and temperatures on your trailer even as you drive down the road. https://hypertech.com/
