Tires are a constant cost for fleets, but tire telematics technology as a segment has lagged behind others like driver training and behavior improvement, fuel efficiency opportunities, safety and remote diagnostics. P.S.I.’s TireView Live aims to change that. During a recent P.S.I.-hosted event, I got a fresh look at the tire telematics platform that has evolved dramatically since it’s unveiling at NACV in 2019. ROI-focused, actionable analytics was the focus of the presentation given by Jonathan Gravell, vice president of business development, P.S.I.

If retreaded tires are such a bad idea, why do North American retreaders sell more than 15 million of the things every year? More to the point, if they are so unreliable and failure-prone, why do fleets keep buying them?
Solving tire inflation problems would save the trucking industry millions. Underinflated tires are the single biggest reason for on-road breakdowns. Underinflation causes rapid degradation in tire life expectancy, and it can create a very dangerous sidewall failure called a zipper rupture. And underinflation makes no distinction between virgin tires and retreads. Under-inflated tires are time bombs. Period.
