“It’s a boost for us to be announcing these contract wins so close to the launch of EnTire Solutions, and it reflects the extremely positive response we’ve had so far,” said EnTire Solutions CEO Rich Wolfe. “With Michelin’s expertise in tire systems and TRW’s electronics and integration capabilities, EnTire Solutions is built on a solid technical and operating base.

EnTire Solutions is a TPMS, which employs a battery-powered pressure sensor mounted on the valve stem inside the wheel. The sensor communicates tire pressure and temperature information to a vehicle-mounted receiver via a radio signal. Vehicle manufacturers can select from two versions of the product.
