  • Our second day of Tire Tips for #NationalSafetyWeek is a new twist on old standby: air pressure. But specifically, Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems, or TPMS.

    TMPS Symbol

    A Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is designed to monitor the air pressure in a vehicle’s tires and to report potential problems to the driver, usually through a yellow indicator light on the dashboard.  Specifically, if your tire’s air pressure falls below 25% below the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended cold inflation pressure or a minimum inflation pressure specified in the FMVSS (whichever is higher). Vehicles sold in the U.S. after September 1, 2007 come standard with TMPS equipment. 

    If your TPMS indicator goes off, you can bring your vehicle to any Sullivan Tire to have your tire’s air pressure properly adjusted for free!
