The benefits of PressurePro

PressurePro remains the best value in TPMS providing advanced monitoring options, comprehensive product offerings and unrivaled component quality.  But what are the benefits that this brings?

1. Increased Fuel efficiency

Under inflated tyres waste over 2 BILLION litres of fuel each year in the US alone. Further, underinflated tires decrease a vehicle’s average fuel economy by as much as 3.3%.

2. Extended Tyre tread life

Under inflated tyres are the #1 cause of tyre failure and contribute to tire disintegration, heat build-up, ply separation and sidewall/casing breakdowns. Further, a difference of 10 lbs in pressure on a set of duals literally drags the lower pressured tyre 4 yards per mile/2.5m per KM.

3. Reduced casing damage

Under inflated tyres damage the tyres casing making the tyre unable to be re-treaded or sold and requiring replacement with more expensive new tyres.

4. Decreased downtime, maintenance and costs

Under inflated tyres lead to blown or damaged tyres and roadside downtime. In the USA, the department of transport states that on average, 7% to 9% of vehicles experience roadside downtime due to problems caused by low tyre inflation with an average repair cost of £500 to £700. Add to this the vehicle’s downtime costs, lost delivery and man hour time and failure of delivery reliability - roadside downtime costs are significant and significantly impact fleet costs and reputation.

5. Lowered Insurance Costs

Blown tyres can unravel and damage the vehicle undercarriage and if part of a set of duals, can damage the companion tyre leaving the vehicle down on the road. Tyre debris can also lead to damage to other vehicles, roadside property and potentially can lead to vehicle accidents and potential liability problems.

6. Added Safety

Under inflated tyres lead to tread separation and tyre failure resulting in 40,000 accidents, 33,000 injuries and over 650 deaths per year in the USA.

7. Reduced emissions and waste

Under inflated tyres are estimated by the DOT to release over 22 BILLION KGs of unnecessary Carbon Monoxide pollutants into the atmosphere each year. Further, low tyre pressures decrease tyre life requiring increased use of raw resources to produce new tyres and increase roadside and landfill waste through heightened blowouts and tyre disposal.

8. Increased efficiency

PressurePro can provide greater efficiency with quicker and more complete tyre inflation checks that take less time freeing up maintenance time for other projects. Less vehicle downtime means more vehicle up time and better profitability per vehicle.

9. Driver peace of mind

Drivers want to get to their destination and back safely as well as on time. Blown tyres are a concern and can leave drivers stranded or faced with difficult situation including injury. Knowing tyre pressures and receiving alerts when tires are low can bring peace-of-mind for drivers and can be a significant driver benefit.
