What is TPMS?
TPMS stands for “tyre-pressure monitoring system”, a very important automotive safety feature. Most drivers will recognise the TPMS indicator as a yellow-symbol that illuminates on the dashboard when one or more of the car’s tyres are underinflated, but other systems might report real-time pressure information via a gauge or pictogram display. Without sufficient warning of insufficient tyre pressure, drivers run a far greater risk of serious accident.
Do I need it?
If your car is equipped with TPMS, then you do need it (see below). You will see if TPMS is needed or recommended during the checkout phase, and we offer a wide selection of reliable products at great price value.
How do I buy what I want?
Go to the SHOP page on our website. Enter the the make and model of your car to find out which types of wheels and tyres will fit. Then spend some time browsing around to check all the options and see what you like best. You can either buy wheels individually or purchase a complete wheel+tyre package.
After selecting your wheel and/or tyres, simply click ‘BUY’ to proceed and we’ll offer a matching TPMS that you can decide whether or not to buy. Note, however, that you must obtain a TPMS if your car is already equipped with one.
What kind of TPMS should I buy?
Your best bet is to buy what our system recommends. We’ll take care of the calibration and everything else.
What about TPMS assembly?
Don’t worry about it. If you’ve ordered a tyre/wheel set, we’ll assemble everything and deliver a perfectly calibrated TPMS. If you’ve ordered wheels or tyres only, then you’ll need TPMS to get everything assembled. (Please note that TPMS assembly is not possible, whether at home or in a garage, after the tyres are mounted.)
Can I use my old TPMS?
If you have sufficient technical knowledge and know what you’re doing….maybe. You can break your TPMS by changing it too often on your own. You’re free to not include TPMS in your order, but we otherwise suggest buying one.
