SmarTire to supply TMPS for Hummer H2 accessory package
SmarTire Systems Inc. is supplying its tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) to Tecstar Innovations in support of its Hummer H2 accessory program.
Tecstar designs, engineers and manufactures special automotive and light duty truck parts and accessory programs to the aftermarket and OEMs. It is packaging SmarTire’s TPMS with GPS and rear collision avoidance technology and will market this accessory package to Hummer H2 buyers. Tire data and other information is displayed via a custom overhead console.
"TPMS is an important safety and performance feature for high-end SUVs such as the Hummer H2," says Jeff Beitzel, president of Tecstar. "The Hummer H2 is the most accessorized SUV in the world and we expect this accessory package to appeal to many buyers of this popular vehicle. Just about the only thing that can stop an H2 is a flat tire, and SmarTire’s TPMS will give the driver critical tire related information while the vehicle is in motion."
Robert Rudman, president and CEO of SmarTire, adds, “With more than 40,000 H2s being manufactured for 2003, we are confident that the purchasers of this popular vehicle will be very interested in the latest safety and performance innovations.”
