Tyre pressure monitoring system
Keeping an eye on tyre pressure is crucial, especially if you drive on highways at high-speeds. Low air pressure in the tyres can lead to them bursting at high speeds, and getting punctured at low speeds. A tyre pressure system tells you the exact pressure in each of the tyres, and allows you to maintain the optimum tyre pressure. In the long run, this also helps increase tyre life as a tyre running at optimum pressure lasts longer than one that’s isn’t.
