Question for those who have changed wheels and tires

So how does the dash react to wheel and tire changes? I know that in my 08 when I changed wheels and tires it always said pressure low, then i didnt bother to put sensors in my second set of wheels and tires and it said tire pressure fault or something like that all the time.

How are the 2011s reacting?

I put my winter rims and snow tires on yesterday. Today it took about 30 minutes of driving before the truck figured out it had no TPMS sensors in the wheels. Now it gives a "Tire Pressure Monitoring System Fault" (I forget the exact words) at each engine start, so I have to click OK to turn off the warning, then the TMPS light flashes for a bit, then stays on.

I plan to install a small piece of black electrical tape over the light for the remainder of the winter!

They are the same, if you don't put the sensors in the new wheels the light will come on

I bought new sensors for my new rims. I got tired of the warning light on my 08. I don't plan on putting my stock rims back on until I trade it.




fx4 and the round PowerStroke emblems are now gone!!

Disable tire pressure sensors?

Does anyone know if there is a menu in the instrument cluster to disable the tire pressure monitoring program? I have looked in the manual and haven't seen anything yet. All I can see there is how to reset the sensors located in the tires.

No there isn't.

Interestingly I've stopped getting the TPMS warnings at startup and the TPMS light on the dash is not illuminating, but my last few drives have been only a few kilometres.

Were are you guys getting your new sensors at? Are they OEM, or after market?

Yeah I need a set of new sensors too. Where is best place to get them. Also do the Dually's have sensors in all 4 back tires?

Going to bring this back up. I'm considering taking the 5-spoke factory 20's and 35x12.50 Trail Grapplers off my old truck to carry over to this one. Do the wheel and tire have to be separated to install these sensors? I'm not familiar with the system at all. Probably a very stupid question. I guess I could always just install them later or deal with the fault

My came from the dealer with after market wheels and 37X12.50R20 Nitto Trail Grapplers, He mentioned that these were the only tires that would allow enough air pressure to prevent the low air pressure warning from comming on. Not sure that anything was added to them.
