TPMS Service

A TPMS or "Tire Pressure Monitoring System" electronically monitors the air pressure inside your tires. Depending on your vehicle, the TPMS reports the tire-pressure information, through a gauge, a pictogram display, or a low-pressure warning light. This system can be divided into two different types—direct (dTPMS) and indirect (iTPMS). As of September 1, 2007, the TREAD (Transportation Recall Enhanced Accountability and Documentation) Act requires that all vehicles sold in the U.S. be equipped with one of these types.

Direct TPMS reports tire pressure in real-time through pressure sensors installed directly in the valve of each tire.

Indirect TPMS uses the car's anti-lock braking systems (ABS) to approximate tire pressure. Since tire inflation levels affect tire rotation, indirect TPMS also relies on the differences in wheel rotation to detect under-inflation.

Benefits of TPMS:
  • Avoid traffic accidents: Recognize under-inflated tires before they malfunction and create an accident.
  • Extend tire life: Under inflation contributes to heat buildup, tire disintegration, ply separation and sidewall/casing breakdowns.
  • Improve safety: Properly inflated tires add stability, greater handling, and braking efficiencies while providing better safety for the driver, the vehicle, and others on the road.

Testimonials

Took my Corvette in to have my tires balanced on their new Road Force machine today and the results were excellent. Easily the smoothest vibration free ride I've ever had. Balancing those large wide tires can be a trick but Dave did a great job like he always does. Many thanks guys for another job well done. My mom was surprised at how smooth the ride is now.

This machine is flat-out awesome! I had minor vibrations that could not be identified until I had Dave at Sedam Tire mount my tires on their new high-tech Hunter Road Force Balance machine. Each wheel/tire was carefully mounted with a damage-free flange – NO Wheel Damage Possible! The machine emulates radial and lateral road force – weight, pressure and speed when your tires hit the road. It senses all defects in the tire, providing exact read-outs of where your wheel/tire is out of balance; including tire uniformity, tire and wheel run-out and any issues with the tire seating against the wheel. That means you not only get a perfect weighting balance, but also a re-seating of your tire and wheel if necessary. (yes, I had one wheel/tire that needed to be broken apart and re-set). If you have any vibration issues, there is NO OTHER WAY TO GO… Thanks Dave and Sedam Tire!
