What Does TPMS Mean?

When it comes to vehicle technology, what does TPMS mean? TPMS stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System, and it uses tire pressure sensors to track the air pressure of your tire. If it senses one or more of your vehicle’s tires aren’t at the recommended pressure, the TPMS warning light on your dashboard will turn on or flash, so you know to add air to your tires. Most new Honda have a TPMS, which makes it easy to prevent tire failure and maintain good vehicle handling when driving around Stratham and Bow.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System Features

The purpose of a tire pressure monitoring system is to track the pressure inside your tires and alert you if the levels drop too low. The TPMS dashboard warning light might look like a flat tire with an exclamation point in the middle of it, or it might just be the illuminated letters “TPMS.” If you notice that your tire pressure light is on, it means your tires are underinflated, which could cause:

  • Poor traction
  • Decreased load carrying capability
  • A flat tire or blowout
  • Poor fuel economy

Short-term, proper tire inflation can protect you from a potential accident, and in the long-run it can prevent your tires from wearing out prematurely and even optimize fuel economy. A tire pressure monitoring system is a great way to keep track of your tire pressure during your Salem travels without having to remember to do manual checks yourself.

Proper Tire Inflation

Tires that are under- or overinflated can cause a lot of problems for drivers. If a tire is properly inflated, it’ll do the following:

  • Reduce tread movement to increase the life of the tire.
  • Reduce rolling resistance to improve efficiency.
  • Increase water dispersion to reduce the likelihood of hydroplaning

To find out what the proper tire pressure is for your vehicle, consult your owner’s manual. Making sure your tires are properly inflated is a quick and simple task that can save you money and stress.

You have several options when it comes to filling up your tires:

  • Many gas stations have tire filling areas separate from the pump station.
  • You can take your vehicle to your favorite service center for a comprehensive tire service.
  • You can even use a bike pump if your tires need air quickly!
