Whistler Tire Scout Tire Pressure Monitoring System
Today’s tire designs make visual inspection of deflated tires very difficult. Often, a 30% under-inflated tire may look much like a fully inflated one.
The Tire Scout Tire Pressure Monitoring System ensures that your tires are always at their optimal pressure.
Easy to install (our test model was installed in less than 5 minutes), the sensors screw on to the tire air valve stem and communicate wirelessly with the dashboard monitor.
The system sits quietly monitoring your tire pressure and alerts you when any of your tires experiences a loss of psi.
Every five pounds per square inch (psi) of tire pressure you lose can translate into a two per cent loss of gas mileage. You can usually find your recommended pressure on the inside of the driver’s side door.
In addition to improving fuel economy a properly inflated tire greatly improves your vehicles handling and makes for a safer ride by reducing the chances of a blown tire.
The savings in fuel alone will pay for the Tire Scout not to mention the added bonus of improved handling and increased safety. Seems like a no brainer to us.
