New tires tomorrow what to do about TPMS?
 
I'm getting new duratracs put on tomorrow is there anything special I need to do for the TPMS? Keeping the stock wheels and going to 285/70/17 from the stock 255s

Thanks

You can move them to the new wheels or just live without them.

If you keep them you'll need to reset the tpms to the new psi. If you don't keep the tpms your low tire warning will stay on unless to reset the warning to zero psi

Consider getting the aev procal for either option you go with.

I left them out of my new wheels and purchased an AEV ProCal to set the TPMS to zero.

If you are keeping the stock wheels all you got too do is adjust the air pressure to the proper settings.

leave them in your wheels, and you can still run the same psi with that tire size.

I have the same rubber, 37psi I found offered too rough of a ride. I run mine at 30 and have grown to not notice the light. Eventually ill order a procal and adjust it and hopefully smooth out the shift points as well.

Aev procal.

Try a quality tire gauge not a 99 cent one.

If you're handy and don't want to deal with the dash warning light, stick them in a piece of PVC pipe and inflate the pipe to the setpoint of the factory TPMS system, then toss it into the Jeep somewhere.
