Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) constantly monitor tyre pressures using tyre sensors in all four tyres and alert the driver with a visual and/or audible warning if there is any change in pressure or temperature. New vehicles fitted with TPMS and registered from 1st January 2013 will also have their TPMS system tested as part of the first MOT test carried out. This means if your vehicle falls into this category and the TPMS is not functioning correctly, you could fail your MOT test.
All Tyres Whitstable & Faversham are fully trained local specialists in TPMS and one of the few garages in the area to not only offer valve service and replacement, but we carry valves and sensors in stock as well as offering a full sensor reprogramming service using the very latest in high end intelligent TPMS equipment from i-sensor.
We offer special pricing structures and account facilities for garages and car dealerships who need regular TPMS service or replacement.
New to All Tyres for 2018 is the award winning Groove Glove offers rapid recommendation for wheel alignment and tyre replacement. It does this by sending the collected tyre profile data to the cloud, where it is analyzed against over 120 tyre profile wear patterns. A report is then automatically sent to a printer describing the condition of the tyres and recommendations for each accordingly.
The Glove is placed on the tyre so that the indicator guidance is well beyond the inside of the tread. Press and hold the two buttons on the sides (a scan buzzer is then emitted) and slide the glove to the outside of the tyre until the guide is outside the edge. Simply release the two buttons and the scan buzzer will stop. This completes the scanning of the tyre.
Groove glove has a built in camera unit which allows you to capture an image of the vehicle number plate. Sophisticated OCR software then lists the vehicle registration number on the treadspec report. Groove glove employs precision twin lasers married to an inertia pack containing accelerometers and gyroscopes. Together they allow for accurate scanning and also alert users of an errors in their scan process to ensure scans are done correctly.
