New Jeep owner from Ottawa, Canada

Just signed up and first week with my 2011 Jeep Wrangler Sahara.
Awsome ride, really injoying the experience espicaly on my holidays.

One question i have is the previous owner put on new tires and rims. American Racing and Cooper tires, they look great and bigger than original which i also have in garage, The tire monitor sensor is always on, he said thats what it is with the new after market rims and tires.

Im new to this and wondering what i can do to make use of the system so it works with there awsome rims and tires.

Thanks so much for all your advice

There is a goodie made by AEV called a ProCal. It costs around $150 US and will do several things like let you re-set the TPS, re-calibrate your speedometer for larger tires (tyres ) etc. I'd recommend one.

Thanks for welcome and advice. For now what tire pressure should I be at. The tires are Copper Zeon LTZ The size are 265/60/?? Close as I can remember.
