Direct TPMS vs Indirect TPMS
There are two types of system. Indirect TPMS is the poor relative. There has been a spate of manufacturers using this system. It’s not as accurate nor as informative. An indirect system calculates the pressure rather than measuring it. Calculations are..
People are always asking us about the difference between a branded tyre vs a budget tyre. With such a huge amount of choice on the market, the price is often the only thing people judge. What we all understand is that budget tyres are the cheapest and branded tyres cost more. Choosing the cheapest may not be the most economic option.
