Description:

The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) provides early warning of any drop in tire pressure by continuously monitoring the pressure in each tire using a dedicated sensor attached to the tire valve, and alerting you via the onboard computer display in the event of a pressure deficiency. It communicates the exact pressure of each tire and/or their deviation from ideal pressure. This does away with the need for regular air pressure checks at the service station, which often prove highly inconvenient.

Additionally, having the correct air pressure reduces tire wear (a deficiency in pressure of 0.3 bar (4.4psi) can reduce the service life of tires by up to 25%). Driving on under inflated tires also results in increased fuel consumption.
