What Does TPMS Mean?

TPMS Light on Dash

Among the various dashboard lights in your new car, truck, or SUV, you may have seen one that reads “TPMS”. If so, you may be wondering: “What does TPMS mean?” TPMS stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System, and it is an important feature built into your vehicle that can help ensure that you enjoy a safe driving experience on Irvine-area roads. Learn more about what TPMS means and why it is so important in this guide from the experts in the Weir Canyon Honda Service Center.

Why is Your TPMS Important?

Maintaining the proper pressure in your tires will make them last longer, improve handling, and help boost fuel efficiency on the Tustin roads. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System alerts you when your tires are underinflated. If your TPMS light comes on, it means that you check your tire pressure as soon as possible. Underinflated tires can cause issues, such as:

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

Even if the TPMS light isn’t on, it’s a good idea to routinely check your tire pressure as well as the tread depth to ensure safety on Yorba Linda streets.

Benefits of Maintaining Proper Tire Inflation 

Underinflation, as well as overinflation, can lead to serious issues when you’re on the road. Maintaining the proper tire pressure provides the following benefits:

  • Increased lifespan for your tires
  • Reduced rolling resistance, which increases efficiency
  • Improved water dispersion, which can reduce the risk of an accident and make it less likely that you’ll experience hydroplaning

How do you determine what the proper tire pressure is for your tires? Check your owner’s manual to see what is recommended by the manufacturer.
