What Does TPMS mean?

2021 Acura TLX Front Dashboard

If you’re in the market for a new car in Union County, you may have noticed “TPMS” or “Tire Pressure Monitoring System” on the list of features. What is Tire Pressure Monitoring System and why is it such a valuable tool for your travels? TPMS utilizes a system of sensors embedded in each tire to help you stay up-to-date on your air pressure at all times. If even one of your tires is over- or underinflated, you’ll get automatic alerts to your vehicle. Find out all about the Tire Pressure Monitoring System with Springfield Acura, and visit us in Springfield Township to find your next vehicle!

Why is TPMS Important? 

You know the basics of the Tire Pressure Monitoring System, so why is it so important? Air pressure plays a big role in the safety of your vehicle. When tires are inflated properly, they wear more evenly and grip the Bridgewater roads better. So TPMS ensures that your tires are always in the manufacturer-recommended zones for air pressure, which means you’ll get better performance. What happens when your tires are underinflated?

  • Decreased load carrying capability
  • Extreme tire wear
  • Inadequate traction
  • A flat tire or blowout

Why is Tire Pressure Important?

Whether you’re dealing with over- or underinflated tires on the Staten Island roads, improper air pressure can have a huge impact on your driving experience. Every manufacturer sets its own guidelines for each vehicle in the lineup, so be sure to double check your owner’s manual. Properly inflated tires help with everything from:

  • Tire longevity
  • Rolling resistance
  • Fuel efficiency
  • Water dispersion
  • Traction

While the Tire Pressure Monitoring System will automatically keep an eye on your air pressure, models without this technology should take regular readings of each tire. We recommend checking your air pressure every time you schedule a tire rotation.
