DENTON, Texas – Peterbilt has announced today that the Bendix SmarTire Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is now available on its cab and sleeper Model 587.
“TPMS provides operators with real-time, on-demand tire status that helps ensure peak performance and can give the operator early warning before potential tire failure,” said Scott Newhouse, Peterbilt chief engineer. “The TPMS display is integrated with the vehicle’s main instrument cluster for convenient, quick glance access to the temperature and pressure of each truck tire. By helping prevent tire failure, TPMS means customers benefit from more uptime, lower operating costs and longer tire life.”
Newhouse added operators are alerted to potential tire issues through an alert on the display and an optional audible alert.
TPMS is also an optional feature for Peterbilt Models 579 and 567.
