It’s really hard to tell how much pressure things are under right up until the point when they burst. That’s how it is with all sorts of different things: revolutions, relationships, chemical reactions. And of course, tyres. It’s almost impossible to judge tyre pressure with the naked eye. You might think that your tyres look fine, but actually they could be badly in need of some air, or even pumped up way too much. Either is a huge problem, with badly inflated tyres reducing fuel efficiency and traction, and increasing the risk of blowouts.
To counteract this problem, you can get tyres sensors that measure what the pressure is like inside your tyres, so you won’t be caught off-guard when things – or your tyres – go pear-shaped. The sensors connect to a device which alerts you when the pressure is outside a safe and reliable range, making a tyre pressure monitoring system. With this system, flats won’t take you by surprise, and you can perpetually keep your tyre pressure how it should be by inflating your tyres as soon as the pressure gets too low, or letting some air out if the pressure is too high.
This is especially useful if you’re travelling long distances, for instance on cross-country trips. That’s why it’s a good thing that the TPMS isn’t just for cars. You can get it for trucks, trailers, caravans, and motor homes, too! Whatever your needs, Safety Dave has you covered, so a flat tyre won’t catch you unawares when you’re fifty kilometres from the nearest town in the middle of the outback. Keep monitoring that pressure, and your driving experience will be safer and easier. A monitor gives you the information you need – so don’t ignore your tyre pressure and put yourself at risk.
