Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Service Kits
A new TPMS Service Kit is a necessary part of every tire service.
When purchasing a new set of tires, you are making an investment in your vehicle. Since 2008, the federal government has mandated that all new cars be fitted with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) to alert a driver when tire pressure becomes low. This system not only protects you from dangerously low tire pressure, but also your tires and your vehicle from premature wear and poor fuel economy. A Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) service kit is a package that typically includes new rubber valve stem seals and nuts to secure the tire pressure sensor to the wheel. It is important that these parts are replaced each and every time you purchase new tires. If a TPMS service kit is not used when a tire is replaced, a slow leak may develop around the old seal in the valve stem, causing tire pressure to consistently fall below safe levels, and triggering a TPMS sensor alert on your dashboard. By installing a new TPMS service kit on all wheels when your tires are replaced, you are protecting yourself and your investment for the long-term.
