What Does TPMS Mean?

Tire Row

TPMS stands for “Tire Pressure Monitoring System.” This system uses tire pressure sensors to track your tire’s air pressure. If it senses that one or more of the tires are below the recommended air pressure, the TPMS warning light on your vehicle’s dashboard will start to flash, alerting you to add air to your tires. Most new vehicles like the Jaguar XE and the Jaguar F-PACE are equipped with the TPMS system.

What the Tire Pressure Monitoring System Does

The purpose of this system is to track the pressure inside of your tires and use it to alert you when the pressure levels drop too low. The TPMS dashboard warning light may look like a flat tire with an exclamation mark in the middle, or it could just illuminate the letters “TPMS.” If you notice that the light has gone it, your tires are underinflated, which can cause:

  • Poor traction
  • Decreased load carrying capability
  • Flat tire or blowout
  • Poor fuel economy

In the short-term, proper tire inflation protects you from a potential accident, and in the long run, prevent them from wearing out prematurely and even optimize fuel economy. This system is an excellent way to keep track of your tire pressure during your Fort Washington travels without having to check your tire pressure manually.

Benefits of Proper Tire Inflation

Both over- and under-inflation of tires can lead to a plethora of unwanted issues for drivers. A properly inflated tire, however, will:

  • Reduce tread movement, thereby increasing the life of the tire
  • Reduce rolling resistance, which will increase vehicle efficiency
  • Increase water dispersion, which decreases the likelihood of hydroplaning

For specifics about proper tire pressure for your vehicle, refer to your owner’s manual. It’s essential to make sure that your tires are always properly inflated, saving you money and stress in the long run.

How Can I Add Air to My Tires?

There are several ways to fill up your tires:

  • Many gas stations have tire filling areas separate from the pump station.
  • You can take your vehicle to your favorite service center for full tire service.
  • If you need a little more air in your tires quickly, you can even use a bike pump!
