In the meantime, read on to find out how a TPMS can benefit individual drivers and fleet managers alike.

Enhanced Vehicle Safety

To begin with, a TPMS will warn the driver when a blowout might be on the cards. This will allow them to adjust their driving temporarily until a safe solution can be found. They also help to ensure that tyres are properly inflated, thereby improving the handling and responsiveness of cars, vans and lorries, especially important in wet road conditions when accidents are most common, of course.

Fuel Consumption Optimisation

Another good reason to have a TPMS fitted is that it will help to bear down on fuel costs. This is especially important for fleet managers who look after vehicles that do many hours on the motorway network every day. Even adjusting the pressure in tyres a little can do a lot to improve rolling resistance, leading to less fuel being used per mile driven. Given the price of both petrol and diesel in the UK, investing in a TPMS can be even more attractive in terms of value for money.

Prolonged Tyre Lifespan

One of the other advantages of having your tyres pumped up correctly under the management of a TPMS is that it will mean less wear and tear for every rotation of your wheels. Of course, partially flat tyres spread out under the weight of the vehicle they are bearing which means more rubber comes into contact with the tarmac. In turn, this wears tread down quicker. The same goes for over-inflated tyres which take too much weight on just one small section of tread. Either way, a TPMS will address these issues.

Minimal Downtime

A TPMS is there to help look after your tyres. As a result, they tend to detect problems before they occur or even prevent them from happening at all. This means that your car or lorry is less likely to be in need of maintenance. For commercial users, this is important because any time that a commercial vehicle is off the road is a business cost, of course.


Thanks to the numerous cost-saving benefits and other enhancements of TPMSs, there are virtually no sound reasons not to have one fitted. Why not consider having one fitted so you can also take advantage of its many plus points?
