Underinflation & Wear & Tear Can Cause Critical Performance Issues

It’s all about traction. Underinflated and worn tread reduces the amount of traction a bus has on the road, particularly when the road is wet, icy, or rough. Undiscovered punctures and sidewall damage can create rapid tire pressure loss and loss of vehicle control.

The Risks vs The Benefits of Regular Tire Inflation Services

NOT Properly Performing Monthly Tire Maintenance

Nitrogen Inflation + Properly Performing Monthly Tire Maintenance

The Truth Is In the Numbers.

FTS mobile nitrogen tire inflation services can change your bottom line and improve operations significantly.

6,000 Minutes

An 80 hour week + 20 hours overtime — that’s how much time is required to maintain the tires of a fleet of 100 buses.

300% Safer

Underinflated tires are 3x more likely to be involved in an accident, according to NHTSA.

125% Savings

Tires that are properly inflated pay for themselves in reduced wear, improved gas mileage and reduced personnel hours.

40 Gallons +

In a FTS bus study, we discovered we can save one bus 47 gallons in fuel economy.

Leave nothing to chance or scheduled for later.

Too often, FTS arrives on site to find buses regularly operating at over 35% underinflation, risking lives and wasting money on tire expenses, man hours and gas mileage. It all adds up.
