Tire under-inflation is the underlying cause of most tire failures and directly impacts fuel efficiency. The ATA Technology & Maintenance Council reported that 20% under-inflation in a CMV tire reduces tire life by 30%, and increases fuel costs by 2%.
Maintain proper PSI for your whole fleet with BIT TPMS.
The BIT ELD app alerts drivers when tire pressure or temperature is outside of safe thresholds. User-set thresholds let you customize each tire individually.
