Tire Pressure Monitoring System...

Hey guys, Can anyone tell me out that system works? I just bought some stock 20's and replaced my 18's. Now i'm getting that there is a problem. I'm guessing I need something out of my old tires and rims. Any help? THanks.

there are multiple threads about this, maybe try searching tps or tire pressure sensors, there should be something already wriiten about how they work.
basically there is a band on the rim of each tire that the actual sensor is mounted to. if you do not have the sensors in you need them. from for the 4 bands are around 300 and they are not reusable. i think there are some aftermarket one available but i'm not sure who sells them. there is also alot of info in your owners manual.

Another thing to search for is TPMS. Without the TPMS sensors in the tire, you will always have a TPMS warning. Once the sensors are mounted, they constantly monitor the pressure and report the current value to the vehicles computer which determines if it's out to tolerance or not. Check the PSI rating on your tires, if it matches that of the sticker on the driver side piller, you won't have a problem if PSI rating is dramatically higher or lower then that of the piller sticker then you will get a TPMS warning.

Dramatic would be a rating of 50PSI on the tire and 65PSI on the piller sticker. Anyway, there's allot of information on the website as VC mentioned.
