Features & Benefits
With SmarTire RV on board, you will benefit from:
- Improved Vehicle and Driver Safety
All too often we hear stories of RVs burning to the ground as a result of a failed tire. When driving a vehicle as large as the average coach with tow-behind, there is almost no indication of a problem until it is too late and a blow-out occurs. With SmarTire RV on board, tire temperature and pressure are both monitored in order to reduce the risk of blow-outs and fires claiming your RV.
- Improved Tire Life
With as little as 20% under-inflation, tire carcass life is reduced by 30% and tire tread life is reduced by 25%. When tires are maintained at an accurate inflation value, their tread will last longer and their carcass will accommodate more retreads.
- Improved Fuel Economy
The best RV adventures are seldom close to home and the price of fuel seems to increase too often to keep track. Tires operated at 20% under-inflation will reduce a vehicle's fuel mileage by 2%. Compounded over the distance and duration of a trip, SmarTire RV can have a significant impact on the cost of running your RV.
- Improved Vehicle Performance
High-performance tires are not critical to having a great RV adventure, but tire performance is absolutely critical to basic vehicle handling and wet weather performance. Stopping distances in an emergency are also determined where the rubber meets the road. Properly maintained tires as a result of SmarTire RV will improve the handling of your vehicle and the grip and performance of its tires in critical situations.
- Improved Dual Wheel Assembly Performance
When one tire of a dual wheel assembly has a lower inflation pressure than the other, its circumference is smaller than the tire next to it resulting in improper axle weight distribution and wheel drag. This condition rapidly generates heat that destroys the tire's integrity and creates the environment for catastrophic tire failures and tire fires. Proper dual wheel inflation will result in better tire life and a safer trip for you and your vehicle.
