Tire Pilot Plus™

Improve Profitability by Enhancing Trailer Tire Life, Fuel Efficiency and Uptime

Optional Tire Pilot Plus™ not only controls pressure through inflation, but also maintains equal pressure across all wheels and features high pressure relief for overinflated trailer tires.

The robust design sets it apart from competitive designs with durable components.

Effective April 1, 2024:

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) Amendment for North American Standard Out-of-Service Criteria (OOSC) Violations is Now in Effect

CVSA will now differentiate between leaks in the tread area of a tire equipped with an ATIS (like Tire Pilot Plus™) versus a tire without ATIS, permitting tires that have a small puncture to remain in service if they are equipped with an ATIS that maintains the inflation pressure greater than 50% of the maximum inflation pressure on the sidewall of the tire.

Operating a trailer equipped with the Tire Pilot Plus™ system, a small puncture leak will not be considered an OOSC violation if the tire pressure is maintained above 50% of the tire rating.

Under these circumstances, Tire Pilot Plus™ would allow the vehicle to travel to a safe location for repair or replacement.

Proper Air Pressure is Critical to Trailer Tire Life

Full Contact
Optimizes traction, handling and maximizes tire life.

Outside Contact
Accelerates irregular tread wear, increases rolling resistance, and reduces fuel efficiency by up to 2%.

Center Contact
Only reduces tire life and traction. Tire is susceptible to tread damage and punctures.

Tire Pilot Plus™ automatically equalizes tire air pressure across all wheel ends by automatically increasing low pressure tires and releasing air from overinflated tires.

Electronically Controlled

Tire Pilot Plus™ is now electronically controlled for even greater profitability through enhanced fuel economy and tire life.

The new electronic control module features a durable tamper resistant sealed design to protect against the elements, and an integrated powder coated steel mounting bracket for easy sub-frame installation. 

The pressure setting is factory preset and maintained eliminating the need for field adjustments, and service diagnostics are more convenient with Bluetooth® connection capability.

Tire Pilot Plus™ systems installed on trailers between November 2022 and June 2023 with the electronic controlled module have been recalled due to specific conditions where all eight trailer tires can slowly deflate.
