More about Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems
A tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) can help ensure that your car, truck, bus or RV tires are correctly inflated. The TPMS alerts the driver if one of more tires are under inflated. Tires that are inflated to the recommended pressure are safer and wear better than under inflated tires. Many recent model vehicles are equipped with a TPMS. Amazon.com sells retrofit tire pressure monitoring systems that can be installed on vehicles that did not offer a TPMS as standard equipment. Installation instructions and all necessary parts are included in the kit.
Repair parts and tools for both retrofit and original-equipment tire pressure monitoring systems are also available from Amazon.com. Replacement parts include items like TPMS pressure monitors, TPMS pressure sensors, TPMS valve cores, and TPMS service packs that include commonly needed repair parts. Tools for repair of tire pressure monitoring systems include nut torque drivers for TPMS Schrader valves, torque tools for snap-in TPMS sensors, digital tire gauges for manual verification of tire inflation levels, and test instruments that can help pinpoint TPMS service problems. When ordering parts for a tire pressure monitoring system, make sure you know the make, year, and model of your car or truck and order only TPMS parts specified for that vehicle.
