Maximising Fuel Efficiency: Decoding the Main Functions of Tyres with TPMS
Unlocking the secrets behind optimal tyre performance and fuel efficiency is key to unleashing the true potential of your vehicle. In this blog, we delve deep into the four critical functions of tyres and shed light on how TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System) takes them to the next level. From enhancing fuel economy to maximising the efficiency of fuel-efficient cars in India, we uncover the dynamic relationship between tyre functions, fuel efficiency, and the game-changing benefits of TPMS. Get ready to revolutionise your understanding and elevate your driving experience with this insightful exploration.
Traction and Grip
The two primary functions of tyres are traction and grip. Traction is the ability of a tyre to maintain contact with the road, while grip refers to how well it can hold onto that contact.
Traction is important because it allows you to accelerate, brake, and steer safely at high speeds. Without sufficient traction, you’re more likely to lose control of your vehicle in slippery conditions or when driving on steep inclines or declines (e.g., hills).
Grip determines how much force you need to apply for your vehicle’s tyres not only to stay on the ground but also to move forward over time–without slipping or sliding out from under you!
Tyres play an important role in fuel economy and can help you save money on your monthly fuel bills.
TPMS helps improve your vehicle’s fuel efficiency by allowing you to monitor tyre pressure levels, which in turn helps reduce rolling resistance and improve acceleration times.
The best way to improve tyre performance is by maintaining proper inflation pressures at all times; this will also help you increase your car’s lifespan by ensuring that there are no punctures or blowouts due to underinflated tyres.
Braking performance is the ability of your tyres to stop your car quickly, safely and efficiently. You must have a good braking system because it helps prevent accidents. The most common cause of accidents is driving too fast for the conditions or not paying attention to what’s happening around you.
Braking performance depends on several factors:
- Tread depth – The deeper the tread, the better your tyre will grip surfaces like wet roads or snow-covered roads. If there isn’t enough tread left on your tyres then they won’t be able to grip onto these surfaces as well as they should be able to which means that when braking at speed there could be an increased risk of skidding if not enough friction between rubber and road surface exists (i.e., if there isn’t enough grip). This could lead to an accident if another driver fails their braking test due to poor traction control systems like ABS (Anti-lock Braking System)
Vehicle stability is a measure of how well your car stays on the road and keeps you safe in an emergency. It’s important to know that tyres play a significant role in maintaining vehicle stability, especially when they’re new or worn out.
The benefits of TPMS are twofold: firstly, it alerts you when there’s something wrong with your tyres; secondly, it helps prevent accidents caused by dangerous tyre conditions like blowouts (where the tread separates from the wheel).
Factors affecting vehicle stability include road surface conditions such as ice or snow; air pressure levels; the speed at which you’re travelling; load distribution between front and rear axles; steering angle (how far away from vertical); tyre geometry (the shape of a tyre’s contact patch); rolling radius (the distance travelled by each revolution).

TPMS helps to ensure that your tyres are performing at their best. It can also help you avoid costly repairs and avoid accidents by alerting you when there is a problem with one or more of your tyres.
If you’re considering purchasing a new car, make sure you upgrade it with Treel’s advanced tyre technology.
