You just found out that your new car has something called, “TPMS”. Depending on how much you know about this useful technology, you may be either happy or confused. What does TPMS mean? “TPMS” stands for “Tire Pressure Monitoring System”, and it enables you to know the air pressure in your tires without stepping out of your car to physically check them. Let’s talk about why that’s a good thing for Albertville drivers.

The Importance of Keeping Your Tires Properly Inflated

If your Tire Pressure Monitoring System alerts you that one of your tires are low, pull into the next available gas station and inflate it to the proper level. If your tires doesn’t stay inflated, they may need to be replaced. In that case, contact our service department, so we can take care of you.

Why It’s So Important to Keep Tires Properly Inflated:

  • Your tires will last longer.
  • Under-inflated tires can be dangerous. You do not want to lose control while driving on our Guntersville roads.
  • Improperly inflated tires will decrease your gas mileage.

What Does TPMS Mean for You?

What does the TPMS mean for you and your car? Many of our Boaz customers often forget to check our tires until there’s a problem. That could be too late. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System checks your tires for you, so that you don’t have to remember.

How to Use the Tire Pressure Monitoring System

If the TPMS light comes on, follow these simple instructions:

  • Inflate the tire as soon as you can.
  • If a tire becomes low repeatedly, you will probably need a new tire.
  • Schedule an appointment at our service center if your tire needs to be replaced.
