Tyre Pressure Monitoring System 


A tyre pressure system like AirAware™ is designed to monitor the pressure and temperature of your tyres. This sensor continually sends information about your tyre pressures and temperature to the receiver which you can keep anywhere in your car. The receiver has no wires and uses 2 AA batteries which are included. It is small and can be kept in your ashtray or anywhere in your car. It comes with Velcro pads which enable it to be secured in any area in your car. The AirAware system lets you check the tyre pressure and temperature of each wheel, and if it drops below a set pressure it will emit an alarm warning you. Ensuring that your tyres have the correct pressure is vital for a number of reasons.

TPMS Did you know?

  1. Nearly 250,000 accidents per year occur in the United States alone are caused by low tyre pressure.

  2. 75% of roadside flats tyres are preceded by a slow leak.

  3. Americans could save $2 billion a year by cutting their fuel consumption by 10%. Or put another way, you could save $674 a year on fuel for your SUV just by keeping its tyres properly inflated.

  4. Up to 40 per cent of European motorists are driving on underinflated tyres. This reduces their vehicle’s directional stability, decreases its fuel economy and increases the rate of tyre wear.

  5. 80% of motorists in the UK fail to regularly check their tyres.

  6. A tyre can lose up to half of its air pressure without appearing to be underinflated.

The best tread designs and the most expensive tyres are nothing without the air that carries them along. Checking tyre pressure is a small investment in time compared to the costs of excessive tyre wear and fuel consumption caused by improper inflation.

Why Monitor Your Tyre Pressures ?

Tyres are undoubtedly the most critical safety component on a vehicle, yet most drivers ignore them and assume all is well unless they appear flat – at which point it is too late!

The vital area of grip where rubber meets road affects a vehicle’s handling, steering, stability, traction and braking. Tyre failure, particularly at speed, can have serious consequences.

The NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) in the USA estimates that the installation of tyre pressure monitoring systems, warning drivers of under-inflated tyres, could prevent as many as 79 deaths and 10,365 injuries each year in the US alone
