What Is TPMS and Why Should You Know About It?
TPMS stands for Tire Pressure Management System. It's a way to ensure that your tires are as safe as possible when you're on the road. Learn what TPMS does for you when you're on the road and why you need it to keep you and your family from an unexpected accident.
The Importance of Tires
Most people forget just how important their tires actually are. They're what keep you grounded on the road, and they need to be in tip-top shape to handle all those unexpected stops or sharp turns you'll eventually encounter. When the tread starts to wear down or they start to leak air, you may be compromising the safety of everyone in the car.
How Does TPMS Work?
TPMS works by keeping a close watch on your tires so you don't have to. It electronically monitors air pressure for your tires in real time. With everything that comes up on any given day, it's no wonder that we rarely even notice our tires. If your tires are leaking a tiny amount of air, you might not notice the depletion just by looking at the tires. TPMS gives you real-time warnings, so you can give your tires the attention they deserve.
Tires don't just keep you from harm on the road, they also play a role in how much money you spend on gas. If your tires can't do their jobs, then your car has to work that much harder to get from Point A to Point B. More air in your tires also means that your brakes won't have to work as hard and that you'll be able to stop on a dime in an emergency. It means that you'll spend less time at the mechanic, and more time on the road.
If you want your tires to last longer, you need to start giving them more of your time. If you need new tires or have questions about the best ways to care for them, give Lanning Automotive a call.
