Tires play a major roll in how your vehicle handles but all too often people ignore their bald tires and just drive on. Continental tires may have come up with a solution for this problem. The company is using a pressure monitoring system with new software which keeps track of the wear pattern of your tires. Once the system reads a change in tread pattern it will warn the driver of the change and notify the driver to check their tires.
Continental is also working on evolving the monitoring system that tracks the load on tires. The system would be able to track if there is too much weight on a corner and would then notify the driver.
The tire company is hoping to have this new tread monitoring system available in Europe by 2017; they have not yet announced a release date for the U.S.
