Keeping your tires properly inflated is one of the best ways to C.Y.A. – Cover Your Assets. Properly inflated tires are essential to safe operation, and go a long way toward reducing out-of-pocket costs by extending tire life, increasing fuel economy and preventing roadside service calls and inspection citations – which can catch up with you in a bad way as a result of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Compliance Safety Accountability 2010 record database.
Meritor makes it simple to C.Y.A. and automatically manage vehicle tire pressure with the Meritor® Tire Inflation System (MTIS™) by P.S.I. MTIS harnesses your trailer’s existing air supply to keep your tires fully inflated to specification, even when your vehicle is moving, helping you save money and adding profit to your bottom line.
