FORT WORTH Safety Systems: Tire Pressure Monitoring System

Posted July 19, 2020 7:15 AM

Flats, blow outs, skids and longer stopping distances can all be the result of driving around FORT WORTH on underinflated tires. Admittedly, it's hard to tell when a radial tire is underinflated. If your vehicle manufacturer recommends 35 pounds of pressure, your vehicle tires are considered significantly underinflated at 26 pounds. The tire may not look low until it gets below 20 pounds.

New laws require all vehicles to include a tire pressure monitor system, or TPMS. driveThis technology has been used by race car drivers for years. They are able to head off problems from underinflation by closely monitoring tire pressure on the track. It's up to your vehicle's manufacturer to determine which of many TPMS systems available they'll use to comply with the law.

Obviously, all of this doesn't come free for FORT WORTH drivers. Government studies have estimated the net costs. Of course, the TPMS system itself will cost something. Maintaining the system will have a cost, replacement of worn or broken parts and tire repair cost increases.

Your safety has always been a priority at Westmoreland Transmissions. We want you on the road and accident free. We've traditionally provided things like tire rotations, snow tire mounting and flat fixes at a very low cost. We've been able to quickly and cheaply provide the service and pass the low cost on to you as an expression of our good will.

Like all other FORT WORTH service centers, here at Westmoreland Transmissions we've had to purchase new scanning equipment to work with the TPMS sensors and to update expensive tire change equipment to better service wheels equipped with the new monitoring systems. Our friendly and knowledgeable service technicians at Westmoreland Transmissions  have been thoroughly trained on many systems and new tire-changing techniques. All of this adds up to significantly increased cost to perform what was once a very inexpensive service for you.

So when you start so see the cost of tire changes, flat repairs and rotations going up at Westmoreland Transmissions, please keep in mind that it's because of government mandated safety equipment. We want to keep you safely on the road – and we're committed to doing it at a fair price. This safety equipment will help you avoid the most common types of vehicle failure in FORT WORTH, and possibly a catastrophic accident.

Testimonials

, 08/06/2020
Called Bob and I told him my systoms I was having on my 2008 Avalanche, he got my truck on the lift within 1 hour, called me that I needed my U- joints replace. He gave me a fair price and called me it's ready for pickup. He showed me the bad parts and guaranteed the noise i was hearing is no longer. there. After going to 3 other auto repair shops that didn't know what my problem was and had my truck at least 2 days, Bob had my truck back to me the same day. I will definitely recommend this place. Great Service and job well done, Bob and team !!!!
