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 Blue Ink Tech App alerts drivers when tire pressure or temperature is outside of safe thresholds. User-set thresholds let you customize each tire individually.
Leave the gauge in the glove box. The Blue Ink Tech App will automatically save current tire pressure readings in the driver's DVIR.
