Sumitomo Rubber Industries Ltd. has begun testing a tire pressure management solutions (TPMS) service that provides remote monitoring of tire pressure and tire temperature. The tiremaker is working with partners in Japan to monitor the consumer tires on vehicles leased and rented to the public.
The tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) in 2008-2016 Chrysler Town & Country vehicles monitors air pressure in the four road tires (excludes the spare). Pressure in the spare tire is not monitored. There are two tire pressure monitoring systems available, a base system and a premium system. The base system does not specify how many tires are low or where they are located. The premium system does so.
