What Does TPMS Mean?

Sometimes it’s hard to keep track of all of the symbols and lights that pop up on your dashboard and if you’re wondering “what does TPMS mean”, you’re not alone! TPMS stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System, which is a built-in tool that tracks the air pressure in your tires. A group of tire pressure sensors relay information to your vehicle’s computer. If any tire is running low on air, your TPMS light will illuminate to let you know. This alert system helps you stay safer on the roads, so you can navigate Georgetown with total peace of mind.

Why Do I Need a Tire Pressure Monitoring System?

It’s important to maintain the proper pressure inside your tires and even the most dedicated driver may forget to check the air from time to time. A visual inspection just won’t get the job done properly, so your TPMS takes the guesswork out of the process. And you might be surprised by just how important air pressure is! Improperly inflated tires are at a higher risk of:

  • Excessive wear and tear
  • Poor traction
  • Poor load carrying capabilities
  • Flat tires
  • Blowouts

When you maintain your tires properly, you’ll spend less time at the service department and more time on the roads of Cameron.

How Does Proper Tire Inflation Benefit Me?

Now you know that underinflated and overinflated tires carry higher risks to your car’s performance and safety, but proper tire inflation can benefit your driving in more ways than you might expect. A good set of tires will:

  • Promote a longer tire lifespan by reducing tread movement
  • Create more efficient driving by reducing rolling resistance
  • Decrease the likelihood of hydroplaning by increasing water dispersion
