Direct TPMS Versus Indirect TPMS

Direct TPMS (dTPMS) gathers accurate pressure data directly from the tire valve via four dedicated pressure sensors that are attached to the valve, reporting pressure readings in real-time. Indirect TPMS, on the other hand, uses the ABS system to approximate tire pressure, and motorists must drive a substantial distance before an alert will be generated.

Everything You Need to Know About the TREAD Act

The Transportation Recall Enhancement, Accountability and Documentation (TREAD) Act was passed by Congress in 2000 in response to a major recall of defective tires that created unsafe driving conditions and multiple driver fatalities (one hundred deaths due to rollovers were attributed to tire tread separation). The TREAD Act has since been incorporated into the existing National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966.
