Keeps You Moving
Introducing the Next Generation, TIREBOSS 2
The most advanced tire pressure control system in the world.
Not only can you control tire pressure from the cab of the truck, with TIREBOSS 2 smart technology, over the road haulers now have GPS and load sensing autonomous control.
Our Hardware is Tough
TIREBOSS is designed to work in the most extreme off-road conditions. Our hardware is reliable, durable and made from the highest quality products.
Total Tire Pressure Control
“Another great feature of TIREBOSS is how easy it is to swap the unit to new trucks. We are often buying and selling used trucks and the versatility and adaptability of the product is excellent.”
Tony Jaenisch, Jaenisch Trucking Inc.

How can you operate tires at lower pressures without causing tire damage?
By maintaining proper tire pressure for the operating conditions, tire life will not be compromised. Industry users have realized an increase in tire life of 20-50%. Severe use applications, such as log hauling, have realized more significant savings
How will tire life be affected?
The tires are set at pressures to match the load and speed of the vehicle. High tire pressures are only required when travelling at highway speeds with a full load. When traveling with an empty vehicle or loaded at reduced speeds, you can safely run with less pressure in the tires. The tire pressure is matched to the speed and load.
How long does it take to inflate tires?
The system is designed to inflate all of the tires within six to eight minutes when going through the typical stages of re-inflation. This is well within the recommendations set by the tire companies to prevent tire overheating. Air supply requirements are determined by vehicle configuration and the number of tires being controlled. E.g. 3 axle vs. 9 axle.
Why would you want to run at lower tire pressures when empty?
Pot-hole and wash-board damage to roads result from an empty vehicle bouncing on the road surface. By reducing the tire pressure, creating a softer ride, road surface damage is minimized. In addition, vehicle damage is decreased and the reduced driver bounce results in less driver fatigue and safer operation of the vehicle. Traction, flotation and superior braking ability are some of the benefits of reduced tire pressures.
What do the tire companies think of running with reduced pressures?
Pressure settings are derived from the Tire and Rim Association guidelines. Tire manufacturers support these guidelines and the use of tire pressure control systems.
How is fuel economy affected?
By operating with the correct tire pressure for the load and roads being traveled, a 3% to 4% improvement in fuel economy can be achieved.
Does the system operate in cold weather?
The system incorporates heaters on the control valves. It is designed to operate in cold temperatures as experienced in the Canadian winters.
How often will the external drive hoses be damaged?
As unusual as the hoses may appear, they are similar to those connected to the brake pots. They have proven to be extremely reliable, durable, and practical. To our knowledge, there has never been any damage to the external hoses on vehicles while travelling on public roads. This technology has been in use on a fleet within the Saskatchewan petroleum industry for over eight years. To date this fleet has accumulated over 12,000,000 km without any damage to the external hoses while travelling on public roads. Even in severe use applications, such as log hauling, the average incidence of damage to the drive axle hardware is estimated at only one per truck per year. The operator is immediately warned by computer of the occurrence and can easily isolate the damage and make repairs.
How long will the wheel rotary unions last?
In a moderate use application, rotary unions will operate between 150,000 – 300,000 miles (250,000 km – 500,000 km) on drive wheels and up to 1,000,000 miles (1,600,000 km) on trailer wheels.
How dependable are the systems?
The systems have been used commercially since 1992, mostly in severe use applications such as forestry, concrete, oilfield and construction. The systems are easily transferred and some are on their fourth vehicle. The system is designed for 10+ years of service and is extremely durable.
