The thing about pressure is that it’s not just about what’s inside – it’s about what’s outside too. Aeroplanes and space suits are pressurised because outside has far too low pressure. Submarines are pressurised because outside has far too high pressure. If you want to stay safe, when it comes to pressure, you have to be aware of how your environment affects you.
The pressure in your tyres is affected by changing atmospheric conditions – especially temperature. During a heat wave or a cold snap, the pressure can go outside its usual range, making your tyres vulnerable to skidding, increased wear, greater fuel wastage, or even blowouts. And the worst part is that humans just don’t have the sensitivity to feel when tyre pressure changes like this. We might be driving on unsafe tyres and never even know until it’s too late.
It’s a good idea to get something that can tell: tyre sensors, which can detect what the pressure is like in your tyres in a way that human eyes can’t. Connected to a tyre pressure monitoring system, the sensors will make sure you always know if your tyre pressure goes outside the range it’s supposed to be. Once you’ve been alerted to the problem, you can take steps to fix it, increasing or lowering the pressure as you need.
It’s important to not grow complacent, because the world and your environment are constantly changing. A TPMS will ensure that you don’t get caught unawares by the consequences of changing whether and conditions when it comes to your tyre pressure. Get a pressure monitor, and stay on top of your tyre pressure no matter the situation. Because it’s important to be safe, no matter the circumstances.
