If you’re anything like me, you live a pretty busy life. Between multiple jobs, personal projects, friends, family and a little bit of me time, I can sometimes hardly find the time to eat and sleep. That’s why anything that helps reduce the time I spend on assorted chores and maintenance is a real life-saver.
A tyre pressure monitoring system saves my precious time.
One of the most frustrating parts of owning a car or other vehicle is the time and money you spend on maintenance. From fuel to oil changes to regular services, it’s a time sink and a drain on your wallet. Part of that is periodically checking your tyre pressure. It’s a thankless job, particularly since if it turns out that your tyre pressure is fine, then checking it was a waste of time. But it’s also not the kind of thing you can just let fall by the wayside, since having underinflated or overinflated tyres leads to poorer handling, longer stopping distances, faster tyre wear, reduced fuel efficiency, and an increased chance of accidents. So that’s a long list of bad things, but even with all that importance, it doesn’t make checking your tyre pressure a fun activity.
With a tyre pressure monitor, automated tyre sensors check your pressure so you don’t have to worry about it. By relegating this chore to the system, you can drive around without worrying about your tyre pressure, as long as the pressure is healthy. And as soon as the pressure goes outside a designated range, the system will alert you so that you can take action as soon as possible, adjusting your pressure rather than driving on tyres that are incorrectly pressurised and damaging your tyres while you do so.
The TPMS lets you have the best of both worlds while you live a life packed with more important things. It saves you time and hassle by ensuring that you aren’t checking your tyres when they’re fine, and it prevents tyre wear by making sure that you know when they’re not fine. Because when push comes to shove, your tyre pressure shouldn’t be what’s occupying your time and your energy. You have a life – and hopefully, an interesting and exciting one. So don’t get bogged down in tiresome – or tyre-some – chores.
