Do You Know How Much Pressure Your Tyres are Under
Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) may not be mandated on cars and trailers in Australia, but from what I’ve experienced, you’d be mad not to have one.
Especially, when you can buy an TPMS under $100. Yes, there’s more expensive ones around and I welcome you to compare the lot.
They Monitor Your Tyres’ Pressure and Temperature
Well, that pretty much says it all. By fitting small sensors to your tyres you get real time information on the pressure of the tyres and their temperature.
It’s important to know your tyres’ pressure because this can be the precursor to a puncture or slow leak. Also, as your tyre gets hotter (by driving down the road), incorrect tyre pressures can cause your tyres to get too high.
Tyres can get hotter when travelling on gravel / rough roads. So, again, its important to know the pressure in the tyres.
As I mentioned above, the tyres get hotter when driving. The temperature and pressure go hand in hand – so, it’s often a balancing game that you need to play and be aware of.
