The pressure of your tyres can be continuously monitored thanks to a device called a pressure monitoring system, or TPMS.

Every electronic wheel sensor valve has a radio transmission system between it and the dashboard, alerting you in the event of a tyre blowout or a puncture, whether that be slow or instantaneous. Checking that a vehicle’s TPMS system is operating correctly is part of its annual MOT test.

Your Safety

The system is a major advance in terms of safety since it alerts you in real time of a pressure failure in the wheels of your vehicle.

In the case of a loss of pressure or a slow puncture, the system will alert you in order for you to take corrective action before major damage can occur. In the case of a fast puncture, the immediate display means you can stop, thus avoiding driving and destroying the tyre. In all cases, TPMS helps you avoid substantial costs.

Fuel Economy

Poor or reduced fuel economy is often caused by underinflated tyres. One of the benefits of TPMS is that it warns you of this so that you can respond and change the tyre pressure.

During any inspection of a tyre, it is important to inspect the condition of the sensor valve and of the electronic system, both vital in ensuring satisfactory operation and your safety. At Eastbourne Tyre Company, our technicians are trained in the different sensors fitted to European vehicles, and in the inspections required for maintenance. The spare parts and the sensors are all available from Eastbourne Tyre Company and are all in compliance with the manufacturers’ standards.
