Take it back to the tire shop. Probably one of your sensors.

Well its the pressure you are running.......not the tires. If you are running your tires at 65 psi, then you should be within the preset tolerance. If you are running lower then that, then yes you will throw a warning.

I would vote with new stems the TMPS units are now missing thus nothing for the system to read the tire pressure thus the light

A good tire shop would get new bands for the bigger rims and keep the sensors on so you wouldn't have a light on. But I do agree that could be what happened. If they are there just find out what the system is set for so you know if it needs reprogrammed for a lower pressure

^^ This.


Also when I put the 35's on my 12 the dealer reprogrammed the TPMS computer for the corrected air pressure.

Thanks you guys are the best, Thank you all for your help. The lift shop that lifted my truck drilled out my spare mounted all the sensors in the spare ?

I will be talking with him next week to put the sensors back in each tire, retrain the computor, air to max tire pressure @ 65 psi take it to the dealer to lower my TPMS setting.

Do you think that is the cure

The dealer can relearn the TPMS sensors by doing a key cycle and then using the remote to save the current PSI information. I'd just get the shop that removed them to put them back in and then go to your local dealership and get them to relearn the sensors/TPMS to the operating spec of your aftermarket tires so they work like they should and operate how they would if you had the stock tires on.

Sensors in the spare will not work.

Retraining the sensors with the reset tool will do nothing to set them to a lower pressure, the TPMS module in the vehicle will still be calibrated for 65 front 80 rear.

You CAN on the 2011/12's set the module to a lower pressure using an IDS scan tool. Not all dealerships will as we are not really supposed to.
