Tire pressure

What do you run your tires at, I would like to run my 20in michelins at 55. I was told it would set the sensors off. I haven't read anything about a shutoff switch. Does ford have a switch like dodge that allows you to run lower tire pressure without setting of the tpms? If not what is the lowest pressure I can run, my door panel states 65psi.

Your TPMS should trip around 62-64 psi. and no their is no shut off switch.

I run my michelins at 65 when I'm empty and at 80 when I'm towing

The tpms set off at 62 or at least that what the pressure was when mine went off with a large bolt stuck in it! I run 70 in the front and 72 in the rear, pressure up to 78/80 when towing heavy.

I got a bolt in one of my tires in May and had to buy a replacement, upset me because now I have 3 worn out tires and 1 half worn out tire.
