TPMS and aftermarket wheel/tire question

I have a 2015 Rubicon Unlimited that gives the individual tire pressure readouts. I was wandering if I put aftermarket tires and wheels on where the pressures are drastically different will the jeep give the accurate pressure readouts on screen still? Also, will it make my tpms light come on? Thanks for the help everyone.

I recently put on new aftermarket wheels and tires. Asked the shop to take out the TPMS from my stock wheels and install on the new ones. It works perfectly without any problems.

but if your running larger tires with more or less pressure than stock does it throw a light and does it still give actual pressure readings on screen?

Well..., I have 35" tires. When the shop put them on, they set it like 40 psi. It shows fine on the screen, but it's too high so I lower the pressure down to 32psi and it seems fine. So far no light comes on, AEV recommends running 30psi on their 2.5" lift kit,but I haven't tried yet.

so it showed 40 on screen but too high.. so what if I get a tire that max pressure is above 40 and it sets off the light?

No wont matter how high you go but when you get 8psi I believe under recommended psi which is 37 or 38psi on rubicon it will go off. If you get an AEV procal you can lower the threshold. I have mine set at 20psi. Some guys shut them off completely but I like having the individual psi's but run 26-28psi on the road.

Also if you run 40psi you will not love the ride of your jeep.
