What Does TPMS Mean?

When that familiar light comes on your dash in Las Vegas, do you wonder what does TPMS mean? TPMS stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System. This system tracks the air pressure in your tires with sensors so you know when your tires need to be filled. If your tires aren’t at the recommended pressure, the TPMS will let you know so you can avoid unnecessary wear and tear, or worse, on your tires.

Learn more about the TPMS features and how it keeps your tires healthy with the service team at Findlay Toyota. Then, be sure to check out our service specials!

Tire Pressure Monitoring System Features

The Tire Pressure Monitoring System on your car is meant to help you track the pressure inside your tires in case it gets too low. Low tire pressure can lead to some serious problems. If your tires are underinflated, this could cause these problems:

  • Excessive tire wear
  • Poor traction
  • Decreased load carrying capability
  • A flat tire or blowout

Keeping your tires inflated properly helps you ensure you won’t have a blow out and have to drive on your spare. A TPMS is one of the convenient ways Toyota engineering has simplified driving in Boulder City.

Proper Tire Inflation

TPMS is meant to help Pahrump drivers keep their tires inflated at the correct level to avoid issues while out driving. The benefits of a properly inflated tire include:

  • Reducing tread movement that increases the longevity of your tires
  • Reducing rolling resistance which will increase vehicle efficiency
  • Increases water dispersion which decreases the likelihood of hydroplaning and keeps you safer on slick Henderson roads

Do you know what the proper tire pressure is for your vehicle? Check your owner’s manual for the proper pressure for your tires, or contact the service center at Findlay Toyota.
