All Things Eventually Wear and Decay


Many philosophers have observed that all things eventually wear and decay. “Vanity of vanities, all is vanity,” declares Ecclesiastes. Yet despite this rather grim proclamation, it’s readily apparent that new life is constantly finding a way to spring up and revitalise the world. Certainly, things are mortal and transient, but that doesn’t stop the creation and the repair of objects and people, so there is reason for celebration despite the pessimism of the sages.

The inevitable wear of everything is present on every level of the universe, from the stars that eventually burn up right down to the tyres on your vehicles. The fact of the matter is that tyres lose pressure and eventually wear out. However, we have the power to pump them back up when they lose pressure, so it’s not that much of a problem – or it wouldn’t be, if it weren’t for the fact that most of the time, we don’t even realise when our tyres have lost pressure. There’s an easy way to fix this, though: the tyre pressure monitoring system.

The TPMS is exactly what it sounds like, monitoring your tyre pressure and informing you as soon as it’s too low. That way, you can remedy the issue immediately, inflating them again and preventing the many problems associated with underinflated tyres, which include poorer handling, increases stopping distance, and greater wear. Rather than waiting until one tyre goes flat before you change it, the tyre pressure monitor gives you the capacity to act swiftly so that your tyres are almost always properly inflated.

Equipped with the ability to react quickly to loss of tyre pressure, you should never be in the situation where your tyre goes flat without realising. Avoiding these unpleasant flat tyres will mean that you won’t be late for that important meeting or hot date because of an unexpected flat.
