Tire Pressure Monitoring

  • Increased Fuel Efficiency - Under inflated tires waste over 2 BILLION gallons of fuel each year and decreases a vehicles average MPG by as much as 3.3%.
  • Extended Tire Life - Under inflated tires are the #1 cause of tire failure and contribute to tire disintegration, heat buildup, ply separation and sidewall/casing breakdowns.  Further, a difference in 10 lbs. in pressure on a set of duals literally drags the lower pressured tire 13 feet per mile. 
  • Decreased Downtime, Maintenance and Costs - DOT states that on average 7%-9% of vehicles experience roadside downtime due to problems caused by low tire inflation with an average repair cost of $700-$900.  Add to this the vehicle's downtown costs, lost delivery and man hour time - roadside downtime costs can significantly impact fleet costs.
  • Added Safety - Under inflated tires lead to tire failure resulting in 40,000 accidents, 33,000 injuries and 650 deaths per year
