The pressure showing on the tire is the maximum pressure you can put it in. You're suppose to follow whatever the placard said on the door.

You need to make sure the sensors are programmed to the car. You are going to have to do it each time you change wheels unless you get the reset tool. If you are losing air pressure from the tires go down to Discount and have them check for leaks, it's free.

I think Max PSI for our Cars is 40PSI.. Which is what all my wheels are at..

Also You may want to check your Dealer out again..

Question,

Is it the TPMS light or Low pressure light.

If it's the Low Pressure light.. ; When you refill it does the Light go away?

If it's the TPMS light; Does the TPMS light go away after you refill your air? If it's just staying on that means your TPMS were not Programmed correctly.

After i got Stocks they had to replace the the TPMS in them because they went back.. It Took 1 week before my car told me my TPMS light came. Had to take it back because they Didn't program them right.. They missed a number

Das ok, atleest u got mor tim to pratis ur text lingo.
lawl.

my car is in the shop now because of some suspension damage from the winter weather. it has been in there for 2 weeks now and still haven't gotten word, so i called them and they told me that they replaced everything but since they replaced 1 tire and the other 3 are low tread, it is setting off the ABS and <!> lights. i call BS, but then again i don't know a whole lot about cars. can someone confirm/deny this could be a cause? thanks

one post is sufficient. bump it after a few days if you need to....
