Your TPMS System
Flats, blow outs, skids and longer stopping distances can all be the result of driving around WI on underinflated tires. Now, it's hard to tell when a radial tire is underinflated but your friendly and knowledgeable Griesbach Auto Service INC. can help you. The tire may not look low until it gets below 20 pounds – which is significantly underinflated.
Your newer vehicle or light truck might be equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). This technology has been used by race car drivers for years. They are able to head off problems from underinflation by closely monitoring tire pressure on the track.
Obviously, TMPS systems don't come free for Weston and Wausau car buyers. U.S. government studies have estimated the net costs of the TPMS system itself, maintaining the system, replacement of worn or broken parts and tire repair cost increases. The costs are partially offset for Weston drivers by savings in fuel and tire wear. There's also a saving in property damage and travel delay for people in Weston.
The government predicts fewer fatal accidents. They estimate that is will cost between three and nine million dollars for every life saved. This new safety equipment will help Weston motorists avoid the most common vehicle failure and possibly a catastrophic accident.
