Who has BMF's, 35 or bigger Toyos and TPMS?

I'm looking for anyone that has BMF Wheels on their truck with 35" or bigger Toyo M/T's and truck is equipped with TPMS... Running into issues and I just am hoping to rule out the wheels as the cause of the problems I'm having. I know the tires aren't at fault because I used them on my first truck with the TPMS and it functioned as it should.

Thanks.

Being an 09 you should have the band sensors.. I'm just wondering if since the bigger M/T tires are beefier than the OE Continentals and Goodyears that the sensors have a little bit of a harder time transmitting thru the tires.. Anyone else care to chime on this?

Hey man just fyi...I went and had discount train mine and it cleared the tire pressure monitor fault instantly...the low pressure came up in 2 miles cause they are only at 38. I talked to my friend at ford and he think he can reset the sensors down to 35psi...ill be trying that to. Dont forget I do have the band sensors...

Most of the Toyo MT's have a rating of 65PSI, take a look at the pillar sticker inside the drivers door and see what your truck requires. If the PSI matches the tires, then all you have to do is transfer the Sensors into the new tires and your fine.

If you lower the PSI below the allowable threshold, then it will trip the TPMS warning lights and messages. So play around with the pressure until you find the happy spot.

blk04snake the f350's run 65 psi F and 80 psi R thats where the problem comes from for us f-350 guys. on my 09 discount used a valve stem mount instead of the bands for the tpms and it works great. the only thing is i have to run 70psi or better in the rear to keep my light from coming on. also how do you like the bds leveling kit vs the icon you had on your old truck?

Everyone keeps saying about the pressures 65 front and 80 rear... That IS NOT the problem I'm having. First the truck has to recognize the sensors before they can tell me the pressure is too low. My message is "TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR FAULT" which according to the service literature means that the truck is not seeing any of the 4 sensors in the tires. I've tried the training procedure using both the activation tool and the trick of lowering the tire pressure until the horn honks. Neither of these is working.
