Post Tire Pressure Monitoring System

Hi,

Just want to ask you guys if the TPMS will help us in "going green" ? I know that TPMS is used to measure tire pressure but in the meantime, if tire pressure is less than recommended pressure it will produces more emission and cost us more towards tire maintenance, right? Thks.

I guess if you want to think of it that way.....but it's more of a safety thing. Under inflated tires can cause a blowout which could cause an accident.

If it helps justify the cost then call it green...I bought the system for safety and preserving the life of my tires with proper inflation...I doubt I would have forked out that much cash to go green, but then again we drive a Prius.

I just purchased the TireMinder Smart TPMS system that uses my iPhone to monitor my coach tires and towed vehicle. It was super easy to install and setup and TireMinder transmitters that go on the valve stem are very small and compact.

I haven't gone on a trip yet with this TPMS, but we are leaving July 1st on a 10,000 mile trip around America. I have more peace of mind, being able to monitor all my tires all the time.

You can think of it as going green, as in greenbacks! The cost of a good TPMS is a little less than the cost of a new tire for most of us.

I suppose you can think of it as going green, but the safety factor is a much bigger reason to own a TPMS. Proper inflation will extend the tread life too.

Heard of that too. I just bought mine, but its from FOBO. I think this one is a bit convenient for me since it offers bluetooth connection, which I can get the reading directly to my phone !

Yeah, I agree with that. TPMS is generally for safety purposes, but just in case was wondering if it is supporting the "going green".

Emission is one factor what destroying our world today.

I guess my purchased of the FOBO TPMS is worth it.

In that sense, we save the usage of rubber ?

Does it uses Bluetooth ? Because mine connected directly using Bluetooth and does have a cloud system to save the data.

Running lower pressure than needed will
1. Use more fuel
2. Increases pollution
3. Running low can result in tire failure which wastes 100Lb+ of tire that is like pouring at least 20+ gal of oil on the ground rather than using it for some purpose.
4. Running improper psi will increase wear and shorten tire life.
