Tire Pressure Monitor for Trailer Prevented Tire Blowout

During Race season, we are often towing race cars hundreds of miles at a time. I’ve had a EZTire-TPMS Real Time/24×7 Tire Pressure Monitoring System for several years and it has helped see tire temperature and pressure information to make sure the trailer is aired up properly and the tires aren’t overheating. The truck has it’s own system.

This past weekend on a tow to Road Atlanta, we had a puncture just before getting on the highway. The TPMS system quickly alerted us and allowed us to pull over and plug the tire before hitting the highway.

To plug the tire, we needed to fire up the generator to power our compressor.

EEZTire-TPMS Tire Pressure Monitoring System mounted in our truck.

After a few hours, we received an alert from the TPMS system again. Unfortunately the plug didn’t hold and we had to stop again. This time we needed a full tire change but were again happy the system alerted us before a blowout!

Fortunately the rest of the tow was uneventful and we made it home safely. The EEZ Tire Pressure Monitor System and the Trailer-Aid Tire Ramp proved critical to fast and safe tire changes.

This Trailer-Aid Tandem Tire Changing Ramp worked wonderfully for a quick & simple tire change.
