Stay Safe By Installing a Tire Pressure Monitor System in Your Car
The government estimates that 25% to 33% of all the vehicles on the road have at least one tire that is dangerously under inflated. Being only 6 psi below the recommended pressure can cause a catastrophic blowout or loss of control. Even if you avoid a blowout, low pressure causes premature tire wear of up to 25% reduction in tire life, and consumes 5% more gas. And overinflation is nearly as bad, as it reduces the contact patch with the road, negatively affecting handling and braking. What’s the solution, other than driving yourself crazy checking your tire pressures every day? Install this Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and your car’s tire pressures are monitored all the time you are driving, and you will be alerted instantly if one (or more) tire loses pressure or if temperatures approach dangerous levels. Installation is super easy: charge the display, set the vehicle maker’s recommended pressures, then replace each tire’s valve caps one at a time as you program the display. That’s it! You can’t look at a tire and tell if it is inflated properly, but now you can look at your dashboard and know you’re safe.
