TPMS Stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System. The job of your TPMS is to monitor the air pressure in your tires and to alert you if the pressure drops below acceptable levels. It is a very important safety feature of many new cars today.
It consists of a sending unit (the sensor) which either bolts on to the inside of your valve, or is banded to the rim. The sensor feeds tire pressure information to a receiver in the vehicle, which determines if you need to be notified of a low or flat tire.

If you see a light like in the image below appear on your dash board, it means there is an issue with the pressure in at least one of your tires. You should check all your tire pressures at the next available safe opportunity.
The maintenance of the TPMS system in your vehicle requires the right expertise and the right tools. Our technicians are trained in TPMS repair and have the expertise and experience that’s needed to service this important technology.
The sensor is the heart of the Tire Pressure Monitoring System. Our technicians can determine if the sensor is operating properly. We can also check battery function, identify damage to the sensor, and spot rust or corrosion that hinders its performance.
We offer a reliable, less-expensive option for TPMS sensor replacement, or for a second set of rims for your vehicle. Our technicians can fit any vehicle with the sensors it needs, for far less than the dealer.
If you have a second set of rims and tires (winter tires, for example), we highly suggest you consider a set of TPMS sensors for them in order to keep the systems functioning normally.
