Thanks to Continental Tires, we have tires that warn of car overloading.
First Continental brought us tires that feature a sensor that tells the driver how much air pressure is currently in the tire. Now the tire company has brought us a new sensor that can calculate and report the current load weight of your vehicle to help drivers keep from accidentally exceeding the suggested capacity.
The tire is able to detect how much weight is on the vehicle by recognizing how much weight is on them from how much of its surface area is touching the ground, which is known as the contact patch. The sensors detect the size of the contact patch and determines whether or not your vehicle has to much weight.
These tires are a must have for SUV owners since their vehicles are often overloaded due to their size, and are top-heavy, which means the combination of an overloaded vehicle and a sharp turn can have tragic consequences.
For now, there is no exact date for the release of these great tires or a possible price for them but hopefully we will hear something soon.
