Default RAM 2500 and TPMS

I just purchased my 2012 2500 4x4 Hemi this past week. I love the truck!!!

But I have one, major disappointment..... TPMS on the 2500.

If the tires drop below 60PSI, the warning goes off (yeah, I know I can push the button and drop the back to 45PDI).

But, I would like the option to put on new tires......285's.... and the sidewall max on those tires is 50PSI.

Is there a solution? Is there any way that the TPMS on the 2500's can be reprogrammed to the 1500 TPMS levels?....which I think are about 35-40PSI?????

Horrible solution....but I dropped the PSI to 45 in all four tires and just ignore the dash warnings. Truck rides better and I'm much happier....except for the lights on the dash.

Wish there was a solution.

Just a thought
ignore what it reads on the tires, as far as tire pressures, there are too many variables
always use the tire pressure on the drivers door

the TPMS won't give you a light unless you go about 15 pounds less than what they are set at

Believe it or not, no matter how large or small a tire is, 35 pounds per square inch is the same if it is a wheel barrow tire or a semi truck tire, the only thing that is different is the VOLUME of air that it takes to reach 35 pounds per square inch of pressure
