from stock to 35" tires sensors suck

I wanted to see If there is anything I can do about the sensor reading low pressure on my tires. I have 35" tires and diffrent rims they put the sensors back in but the pressure is different in the mud tires. Do you guys know of any way to reset the sensors to match the rating of the mud tires?

I think one of the tuners allows you to set the pressure now, I think it was H&S.

Yup, H&S. You will need to try and get your tires up to 65 psi or so to get the sensors to stop flashing the warning unless you get one of the H&S Tuners

I don't understand the point of having a truck that can tow as much as ours can, and then putting tires on it that can't handle the load. Why didn't you get load range E tires. They have them in 35's?

The floatation type tires run at 65psi, even though they are E rated.
But the E rating on a floatation tire equals a much lower load capacity.

Mor4, Some folks perfer the floatation to the load capacity. Not everybody puts a load on their trucks like we do. 35x12.5r20 is a 35" tall E rated tire that max's at 65psi. It's rated @ 3195 lbs

Where as the Light Truck non floatation tire. LT295/65R20 is 35.5" tall and runs at 80 psi and is rated 4080 lbs That extra 15psi of air pressure = 900lbs more load per tire.

Throw all 4 sensors in a metal pipe, cap both ends with a way to add air, pressurize to 65 PSI. Abracadabra, no more light.

It won't work. The sensors turn themselves onto a standby mode when they don't sense the rotation of the tires. People have tried every way to get around this. The only ways are A)Run tires with a max PSI of 80 B)Put some black tape behind the dash covering the light C)Tuner

Is it hit and miss? My buddy did it on his 08 and never had a light come back on.
