Tire Pressure Monitoring System Features

This electronic system uses tire pressure sensors to measure the air pressure of your tires. If one or more of your vehicle’s tires isn’t at the recommended pressure, the warning light illuminates or flashes so you know to add air. If your tire pressure light becomes illuminated it means your tires are underinflated, which could cause:

  • Excessive tire wear
  • Poor traction
  • Poor fuel economy
  • Decreased load carrying capability
  • A flat tire or blowout

Proper tire inflation prolongs the life of your tires and can reduce the likelihood of accidents. A tire pressure monitoring system is a great way to keep track of your tire pressure during your DFW travels without having to remember to do manual checks yourself.

Proper Tire Inflation

Both over- and under-inflation of tires can lead to a host of unwanted issues for drivers. Meanwhile, a properly inflated tire will:

  • Reduce tread movement thereby increasing the life of the tire
  • Reduce rolling resistance which will increase vehicle efficiency
  • Increase water dispersion which decreases the likelihood of hydroplaning

Check our owner’s manual to determine the proper tire pressure for your vehicle. Some tire brands will even have it listed on the side of the tire. Making sure your tires are properly inflated is a quick and simple task that can save you money and stress long term.
