Question is TPS light came on this morn,Ihave changed out the factory wheels with some 17s but transfered over the sensors from the original wheels to the new do I fill the tires to the settings on the door label or do I fill them to the pressure on the tires to turn the light off? Thanks...

The pressure on the tires is for maximum inflation. It is not for running the tires in a normal condition. The values on the door jamb are everyday use and for this specific car.

I had the same question this summer. I swapped my stock steelies for 215/45R-17 91W Yokohamas on Konig wheels. I ended up calling Yokohama's 800 number. They wanted the tire size and make/model/year of my car. An engineer called back about 20 minutes later with the recommended pressure (40 psi front/36 psi rear).

Call your tire manufacturer. :cheers:

Funny, I have different summer wheels (winter stocker ones with TPS) and didn't put the TPS in them, the light comes on, but then it goes out for a couple days, then flashes and comes back on? Weird.

if you have a different tire pressure then the previous ones, just reset it, I think the button is under the dash. Not sure the sequence.

the sensor is most likely picking up your stock wheels in your garage or something, mine did that when I parked near my shed after my winter steelies were stored.

I just consider it my awesome light, to let me know how awesome I am. I mean, it is an "!"
