ZUS takes on the challenge that many drivers face: we don’t know when a tire is actually dangerous. ZUS has created a smartphone tire monitoring system which uses a companion application and four air valve nozzles which are fitted to each tire on your car or vehicle. Apart from detecting the pressure in real-time the sensor also detects the slow leak and indicate which tire is leaking and at what rate.
The ZUS Tire Pressure module is made up of a hub which needs to be connected to the 12V output all the time. All of the components connect to the ZUS app and the same will curate all the information and also notify you if the tire is leaking thus preventing a potential accident.
Some tips to get the most out of tires and stay safe on the road
- Rotate tires after every 5,000 miles: This will help tires wear at the same time.
- Always put new tires on the rear axle: When tires are replaced in pairs in situations like these, the new tires should always be installed on the rear axle and the partially worn tires moved to the front. New tires on the rear axle help the driver more easily maintain control on wet roads since deeper treaded tires are better at resisting hydroplaning.
- Keep tire pressure at the recommended level: Low tire pressure can cause tires to lose their grip on wet, rainy surfaces. How much pressure do your tires need? Look for the number in your car owner’s manual or on your car door.
4. Check tire pressure on a regular basis: “We want to do this once a month or before a long road trip. Do it in the morning when the pressures are cool and stabilized.
5. Check tire tread depth regularly: This will help keep good traction on wet roads. There are several popular ways to check your tire tread depth. One easy way is the penny test. Simply insert a penny into your tire’s tread groove with Lincoln’s head upside down and facing you. If you can see all of Lincoln’s head, your tread depth is less than 2/32 inch and it’s time to replace our tires.
