What Does TPMS Mean?

TPMS Sensors

TPMS stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System, which allows you to track your tire pressure via sensors. If you are running low on tire pressure in the Rome or Acworth area, the TPMS sensors can alert you to your underinflated tires in real-time. Many vehicles are equipped with a TPMS system to track tire pressure and temperature, so learn more with Riverside Buick GMC on what that entails for you.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System Features

When you are running low on air pressure in your tires, you will be alerted with a TPMS warning light, which either looks like a flat tire with an exclamation mark or an illuminated TPMS lettering. It is important to take your TPMS light seriously as low tire pressure can ultimately cause:

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

Tire inflation is important in the short term to prevent a potential accident, and in the long run, prevent tires from wearing out or blowing out prematurely. Come visit our Riverside Buick GMC service center if you have any questions about your tire temperature or tire pressure.

Proper Tire Inflation

You also will want to properly inflate your tires because:

  • Reducing tread acts as a means to improve tire lifespan
  • Reducing rolling resistance will increase tire efficiency
  • Increase water dispersion which decreases the likelihood of hydroplaning 

There are several options to fill your tires to the proper amount:

  • Visit a gas station to fill your tires with the pump station.
  • You can use your local Canton service center for full tire service.
  • Use a bike pump if you are in a pinch.

To find out the specific tire pressure specifications, consult your owner’s manual for more information.
