Check Air Pressure in Tires

Tire pressure is one of the best and easiest ways to make sure that your vehicle is running in top condition. It’s easy because it requires almost no technical skill to use. It’s the best because you can save quite a bit of money on fuel. Also, when your tires are inflated correctly you get better gas mileage; plus, your tires are going to last longer. When tires are under inflated they tend to wear in the wrong spots. Tires are made specifically to be durable in the spots where the vehicle puts the most pressure on the tire. This is the center of the tire. When your tire is under inflated, part of the sidewall on your tire starts to hit the ground. These sidewalls are not built for constant contact with the ground. They are built to withstand a different type of pressure.

Even with the ease of tire pressure monitoring and all of the benefits that come with it, it’s one of the most commonly looked over things on a car or truck. People just don’t think about it. Plus, checking the pressure on any tire can be a pain. You have to buy a special piece of equipment that you press up against the tire valve which then measures the pressure. You have to get on the ground, take off the valve cap and do all of this for every single tire. It can become an exhausting project when you have more than 4 wheels such as on a motor home or truck. Even with just 4 wheels it can be a tedious thing to do.

Thankfully there is the electronic tire pressure monitor, or TPMS available. A tire pressure monitoring system system measures the pressure in each of your tires and does so without any work on your part. All you have to do to make this system work is install a small pressure Sensor on each of the valve stems (replaces the valve stem caps). These sensors send the tire pressure to a central unit (a “Monitor”) which is capable of displaying the pressure of your tires at your command. You can scroll through every single tire on your vehicle and know which one needs to be filled, even while driving down the road. It also automatically alerts of low and high-pressure tires.

One of the best systems out there is the PressurePro system; it’s simple to set up and use. PressurePro, made in the USA, has a reputation for being reliable and giving you the most accurate tire pressure. They have intuitive controls and will make measuring the pressure on your vehicle’s tires easier than you ever thought possible.
