Educating Drivers, Technicians And Service Advisers With Dill’s New TPMS Videos

Dill Air Controls works to bring new awareness to the automotive industry and today’s drivers with the launch of its new TPMS training and educational videos.

With the arrival of fall and the changes in temperatures, it is more common to see TPMS lights appear on drivers’ dashboards, and it is a time of increasing tire sales, many requiring service kit replacement.

“The importance of having the proper air pressure in tires and regularly servicing TPMS cannot be stated enough. As TPMS grows, statistics show a decline in automobile accidents directly related to underinflated tires. Educating the customer on the value of their Tire Pressure Monitoring System and why it must be maintained will continue to support safer driving,” said Larry Schlesinger, Dill Air Controls chief engineer and global tire valve expert with the International Organization for Standardization (IOS).

Dill’s latest video launch supports three audiences – consumers, technicians and service advisers. The consumer videos are available in shortened versions, and are positioned for the customer waiting area or on a website to provide practical information while reinforcing the critical importance of TPMS.

To support the tire and automotive industry, the videos also are placed on multiple syndication networks that reach more than 180 million Americans collectively. Since the first series launched in the spring of 2013, Dill’s training and educational videos have received more than 3.5 million views.

New consumer videos include:
• Why a Tire Pressure Monitoring System Light Comes on in the Fall
• The Benefits of a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

New technician and service adviser videos include:
• Common Aluminum Valve Stems for Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS)
• Common Rubber Valve Stems for Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS)
• How to Troubleshoot and Perform Tire Pressure Monitoring System Relearn Procedures

The videos are available for free by contacting Dill directly or can be viewed on

The Winter Tire Opportunity – Now Is The Time

Winters tires aren’t just a luxury, it’s your job to tell your customers the positive impact that the tires can give them.

It was a frigid February morning in Chicago last year. The kind of cold that creeps into the depths of your lungs, making it difficult and even a little painful to breathe. The kind of cold that literally takes your breath away. The snow was falling as I stepped into my car and took off across The Chicago Skyway with the city lights in my rear view. It was around Gary, Indiana, that the lake effect snow engulfed Interstate 90 and made it impossible to see the road more than about 15 feet ahead as I made an unwise attempt to pass a massive snowplow in the right lane. And, it was this moment that I understood the difference between an all-season tire and a true winter tire. My life as a “tire guy” would never be the same again.
