Why TPMS sensors are scaring winter drivers

Feb. 19, 2015

Boy, is it is cold and snowy out there! And with the cold and snow comes the chance to sell more winter tires, or replace tires destroyed by potholes.

But with the extreme cold in Northeast Ohio and other parts of the country comes another problem: low tire pressure. And what happens when tire pressure drops below a certain level? The tire pressure monitoring system sensors light up dashboards.

To drivers, that can be as scary as an episode of "The Walking Dead."

In his latest blog, Modern Tire Dealer Editor Bob Ulrich discusses tire inflation pressure and the weather. He also wants to know how tire dealers across the country are handling the situation.

To find out what he has to say, read why "Improper tire pressure remains a hot topic in the cold weather."

Oh, and if only to appease Ulrich, please let us know how you are handling tire pressure and the extreme cold by leaving a comment.
