Tire Pressure Report

Prior to the introduction of tire pressure monitoring systems, it was very difficult to perform a comprehensive study of tire pressures and tire pressure maintenance on our customer’s vehicles. Using GM’s OnStar system and GM’s tire pressure monitoring system (which is now installed on a wide range of vehicles to meet FMVSS 138 requirements), the authors were able to survey a large number of customers, in real-time, on a continuous basis. This study is limited to subscribers of OnStar Vehicle Diagnostic monthly email service who have vehicles with a tire pressure monitoring system. It provides insights on the tire pressure maintenance behavior of owners relative to seasonal temperature variations, oil changes, accumulated miles, vehicle age, and vehicle type.
