What Does TPMS Mean?

mechanic checking tire pressure

If you notice the TPMS warning light on your dash is on or flashing, and you’re not sure what it means, we at Town North Mazda can help. TPMS stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System, and it uses tire pressure sensors to track the air pressure of your tire. If this system senses that one or more of your vehicle’s tires is below the recommended pressure, this light will go off. Some TPMS lights flash, so you’ll know when to add air to your tires. And while this system might not come to mind when you think of vehicle safety, the TPMS makes it easy to prevent tire failure and it promotes predictable vehicle handling when driving around Plano.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System Features

The purpose of a tire pressure monitoring system is to track the pressure inside your tires and alert you if the levels drop too low. If your tire pressure light becomes illuminated it means your tires are underinflated, which could cause:

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

Keeping your tires properly inflated means prolonging the life of your tires and preventing a potential accident caused by a tire blow out. A tire pressure monitoring system is a great way to keep track of your tire pressure during your Dallas 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

To learn more about the proper tire pressure for your vehicle, consult your owner’s manual. Making sure your tires are properly inflated is a quick and simple task that can save you money and stress long-term.
