TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) is an electronic system that monitors tire air pressure. Knowing if your car has TPMS will enable you to find the right tires.
HOW TO FIND YOUR VEHICLE'S TRIM
Check the side or rear of your vehicle
Check your vehicle's owner's manual
Look inside your driver's side door
Inspect your vehicle's title or registration

Before the creation of the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), knowing whether your air pressure had reached unsafe levels meant getting out, crouching down, and using a tire gauge. But how does TPMS work?
There are two main types of winter tires: studded and studless. Studded tires were the must-have snow tires for a long time, but advances in rubber compounds and other winter tire technologies have changed the minds of many drivers.
Both underinflation and overinflation can cause headaches like premature treadwear and possible tire failure. The best way to ensure you're getting the most out of your tires is to check your tire pressure regularly. We'll show you how.
There's not much we can do to control the price at the pump, but there are ways to increase fuel efficiency and get the most of each tank of gas. Use these tips for more mileage between fill-ups as well as more money in your pocket.
Caring for your car and keeping it in proper running order takes just a little bit of effort. To maximise the life and performance of your vehicle, here is a list of items you should check depending on the time and season.
