hey i just put a new wheels and tires on my 08 ram and had a question. About day after i put them on and had everything checked and aligned, the low tire pressure light came on and has stayed on since. Was wondering if i should just pull the sensor on it and leave it out? I went to a bigger tire 35X12.50X18 nitto trail grappler and black hostage fuel wheels. I they set the tire pressure to 35 on each tire at the garage. Any help would be appreciated if you had this problem? thanks

Did you install TPMS sensors in the new wheels? If so, are they the right ones? There is more than one type, so have to ask this question. If so, check the recommended tire pressure on the tag on the B pillar. If the pressures are different, you may have to get the computer flashed to the new required pressure setting, or run the tires at the OEM setting if they are rated to handle that pressure.

re- check the tire pressure yourself

they might had it wrong, and make sure all 4 are at the same pressure and aroun 35 or 36

It could be as simple as them putting the sensors on the wrong corners. Pressure wont change between tires/wheels. I would do a reset first then you might have to take it back to the shop that put your tires on. Any reputable shop would fix this issue, since thats their business.

ok i found out what the problem was. The company i got the new tires and wheels off did not put the tpms sensors in my new set. I figured that they would just put them in, but apperently they needed me to tell them that i wanted them put in. Why i have no clue? Anyway after some frustrating emails and phone calls, i decided to just take the sensors out of my old wheels and tires and put them in my new ones. I will take them someplace this wkend and get that done. thanks for all your help guys

Dumb question alert: Is this something that you could do yourself, theoretically?

The reason I ask is I found out today that the prev. owner upgraded the tires/rims on the truck and the dealership is giving me a rough estimate of $500 for parts and labor.

If not would a tire shop handle this?

Any info is appreciated.

Thanks!

yea it is something you could try and do urself. Though i talked to some people today and they said those sensors are hard to get out sometimes. Plus they can break very easily. I got some quotes from places to do it and nothing was over 100 dollars. So think i will safe myself the trouble and take it somewhere. Not to mention those sensors are not cheap if i was to break one.
