Tire Pressure Monitors

I have a 2011 F250 Diesel CC 4WD and replaced tires and wheel with 315/70/17 BFG AT......problem is that these tires run at 50PSI and my tire monitors are sensing low all the time because the sensor cant be calibrated to that low of a PSI per my local FORD delaership?

I find this hard to believe............Anyone have suggestions?

Thanks!

Dealer is correct, there is no way short of the using the Ford computer to adjust the lower threshold and recently it's been reported that their software has been updated so that it can no longer do it.

Most people ignore it, some have taken apart the dash and removed the bulb but that doesn't stop the message center error. A few have talked their local dealer or found a dealer to do in the system an alter the lower threshold. But as I mentioned, rumor has it their computers have been updated to remove that ability.

There's also the possibility the tuners can come up with something and recent reports indicate that H&S is working on that.

We cannot lower the factory pressure settings. We can make them higher but no lower.

Sounds like you've got D rated tires when you need E rated.

Change the tires or live with the light and message center displays.

Yes they are D rated tires, I dont ever trailer or haul heavy loads; BFG AT 315/70/17.......if a ran the at 60 psi would that decrease tire if or just give me a rougher ride?

Thx

You might what to give this a shot, i few of the guys around me that run big rims on their tahoes and escalades, take all the sensors and put them in the spare tire(if you still have it on the truck), cant hurt to try
