Although this remains controversial, we do need to take ownership of the complications, however delayed, that arise from over- or underinflation
of endotracheal tube cuffs.
, or using the tyre with less-than-optimal air pressure, is central to tyre blowouts and excess tyre wear.
can sub-optimise stopping and cornering power and result in poor fuel economy.
If they spot a tire-related problem such as underinflation
or excessive heat buildup, they can act to solve it before it affects production," Francis explained.

In order to evaluate the effectiveness of TPMS in reducing underinflation
in the on-road fleet of passenger vehicles, NHTSA conducted the Tire Pressure Monitoring System Special Study, collecting data from August 2010 through April 2011 .
Standard safety stuff runs to ABS, emergency braking assistance, ESP with traction control, Hill Start Assist and Direct underinflation
detection, using a pressure sensor fitted to each wheel.
The product is installed through the valve stem and protects tires from underinflation
caused by slow leaks or punctures.
causes excessive heat buildup, which leads to premature wear and tire blowouts.
