Filling up a tire

What Does TPMS Mean?

Strong tires are important to ensuring a seamless ride around the Walla Walla and Tri-Cities area. To help make managing your vehicle’s functions even easier, your Honda vehicle may come with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) warning light on your dash. So, what does TPMS mean? This unique feature is designed to use sensors to measure the pressure in each of your tires and will notify you if one or more of your tires has too little air pressure. Learn more about the TPMS in your Honda from the automotive experts at Walla Walla Valley Honda.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System Features

If you notice that you don’t have much traction or control behind the wheel, then this may be an indication that your tires need more air. When you notice your tire pressure monitoring system is flashing, it may be letting you know of several problems with your tires that you must address. These include:

  • Excessive Tread Wear
  • Decreased Traction
  • Decreased Load Carrying Capability
  • Increased Chance of a Flat Tire or Blowout
  • Decreased Efficiency

Understanding Proper Tire Inflation

While you surely don’t want to be driving around with under-inflated tires, the same can be said when you have too much air in your tires. Always check your owner’s manual for recommended tire pressure and be sure to double check your tire’s current pressure after it is rotated. Properly inflated tires will help with the following:

  • Increase the life of the tire by reducing tread movement
  • Increase vehicle efficiency by reducing rolling resistance
  • Decrease the likelihood of hydroplaning by increasing water dispersion.
