Who Needs a Tire Pressure Monitoring System?

While certainly any vehicle with tires on it can benefit from Hypertech’s Wireless Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) + Booster, there are different benefits for separate types of drivers and vehicles. We will look at some of them in this article.

 

Older-Model Vehicles

Any vehicle manufactured before 2008 is not required to have a TPMS installed upon delivery. That means if you drive a car made earlier than 2008, then you have to add your own TPMS.

 

Motorcycle, RV, and Trailers

It is common for these vehicles to come without a tire pressure monitoring system installed. Since the air pressure in the tires of these vehicles can change (sometimes dramatically) day-to-day, getting a TPMS is imperative.

 

Truck Drivers

It is just statistically logical that you have a higher chance of getting into an accident the longer you are on the road. You want to keep your tires in tip-top shape to minimize blowouts and reduce wear to maximize handling. This will decrease your chances of getting into an accident.

 

People Who Drive in Extreme Weather

Extreme climates cause tire pressures to change while in transit, and a breakdown or accident in those climates can be a life-or-death matter. The last thing you need to worry about is your tire pressure while navigating ice roads or endless deserts.

 

Drivers Who Care About the Cost of Gas

Of course, that means you. Underinflated tires will reduce your vehicle’s gas mileage by roughly 3%. So if you spend $300.00 per month on gas and your tires are underinflated without your knowledge, then you are wasting $9.00 a month because you don’t have a TPMS.

 

Drivers Who Care About Performance

If you do any kind of track racing, street racing, or are a car aficionado, then you need Hypertech’s TPMS + Booster. A vehicle’s tires need to be properly inflated at all times to perform at peak levels.

Even if you don’t fall into one of the above categories and you are driving a vehicle with tires, you should still consider getting a TPMS. Why? It will enhance your safety. What’s more important than that?
