TPMS Service

TPMS Service in  Markham, ON

The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) provides an early alert when tire pressure levels drop from a puncture or cold temperatures. 

There are two types of monitoring systems: direct TPMS (dTPMS) and indirect TPMS (iTPMS). 

Braidan Wheel & Tire services both kinds. 

We can:

  • Repair and replace sensors 
  • Reset the TPMS warning light
  • Install a new TPMS

When your TPMS alerts you to a problem caused by a road hazard, our service staff can assist. We provide flat tire repair when possible, and we have a wide selection of tires available if you need a replacement.

Direct TPMS vs Indirect TPMS

Direct TPMS: Most vehicles have a dTPMS. In this system, each tire gets its own sensor. Sensors can be located on the inside or outside of the tire.  Each sensor reports to your on-board computer. A dTPMS often uses a battery and has a limited lifespan. Most systems only record data when your vehicle is running to make the battery last longer. 

Indirect TPMS: An iTPMS monitors each tire's rotational speed to determine whether or not a tire is at proper inflation levels. Underinflated tires have an overall diameter that is less than properly inflated tires. As a result, the underinflated tire needs to rotate faster to cover the same distance as the other tires. If the iTPMS identifies a tire rotating at a different speed, it will alert you that there is an inflation problem. Your iTPMS may also be able to catch overinflated tires since they rotate more slowly than the other tires.

Why Fix or Install a TPMS?

  • Safety: Receiving a warning as soon as you get a flat tire gives you more times to react.
  • Tire Life: Underinflated tires wear out faster and don't have as good a defense against road hazards; you can improve the life of your tires if you keep their psi levels in check.
  • Tire Performance: A properly inflated tire provides better wet and dry handling; underinflated tires make it easier to hydroplane, crash from a tire blowout, or skid on a curve.
