SmarTire Systems Inc. has announced that Spartan Chassis Inc., a
subsidiary of Spartan Motors Inc., now offers SmarTire’s tire-pressure
monitoring systems (TPMS) as options for its motorhome customers.
Spartan currently has 36 models riding on its custom chassis, and
supplies 100 percent of the custom motorhome chassis for Newmar, Travel
Supreme and the American Division of Fleetwood.
The SmartWave TPMS improves vehicle safety and reduces fuel and
tire costs by providing drivers real-time tire information while their
vehicles are in motion. At a push of a button, the SmarTire system
displays each tire’s temperature and pressure deviation. If the system
detects a loss of air pressure or abnormally high tire temperature, a
bright warning light automatically alerts the driver to the condition.
