For over 18 years Advantage PressureProTM has watched interest in Tire Pressure Monitoring (TPMS) products grow across all industries from autos, RVs, light trucks, tractor/trailer, buses and heavy industrial equipment users. Over the last 2 years however, they’ve seen interest in TPMS grow exponentially.  Drivers and fleets of all types are beginning to understand the significant benefits TPMS provides.  The increase in awareness of carbon emissions and lower fuel use, rising gas prices, the increased costs of tires and the understanding of the relationship of low tire pressure to accidents, injuries and deaths as well as insurance costs are stimulating strong interest in maintaining proper tire pressure.  As a leader in the TPMS market, PressurePro has taken time to share why these four simple letters, “TPMS” can have such an impact on safety and savings during your travels.  www.advantagepressurepro.com

Reasons to always keep your tires properly inflated (i.e. prevent under-inflated & over-inflated tires):

  • Vehicle Safety – Proper tire inflation greatly reduces the potential of a tire blowout that can lead to unwanted road-side emergencies, damage to vehicle, and even personal injury.
  • Accuracy / Reliability – Real time TPMS allows drivers to quickly respond to an audible beep and a visual alert emitted by the TPMS alarm when the tire pressure falls to dangerous levels. Aftermarket TPMS can usually detect any air leakage in seconds.
  • Improved Fuel Economy – The Department of Transportation estimates that 5 million gallons of fuel per day (over 2 billion per year) are wasted due to low tire pressure. Under-inflated tires increase the rolling resistance of vehicles and, correspondingly, decrease their fuel economy. By providing real time tire pressure readings, TPMS helps drivers maintain optimal pressure allowing increased fuel efficiency and big savings at the pumps!
  • Enhanced Vehicle Performance – Tires with low air pressures require greater stopping distances and cause deterioration in tire performance; for example, tires low on pressure skid and hydroplane more easily. TPMS provides the information drivers need to allow optimum performance of vehicles through greater stability, handling and braking in both wet and dry conditions.
  • Increased Tire & Tread Life – When a tire is under-inflated, more pressure is placed on the casing of the tire, causing the tread to wear more rapidly than it would if the tire were inflated to the proper pressure. It is estimated that properly inflated tires can extend the life of tire treads and casing by as much as 35%. TPMS provides the information needed to maximize tire and tread life.
