:x i was driving on the hway and a light and sound came on in my dash board, i thought it was one of the tire that might have low pressure and the sensor was telling me that but it was not. the truck kept str8 i did not feel nothing wrong more that some wird noise and when i stoped to take a look at i could not believe how bad the tire was.
Did you guys hear about any problems with the tires? maybe it was just bad luck, but what is funny the night before to the blow out i check all tires presure witha a new device i bought and i put all them to 35 psi, my meter read 35 psi and the gas station meter read 39 psi so i falow mine cause it looks like a clock and it is easy to read. My wife says i over inflate the tires by using that new divice but i explained to her that even if my metter did not work acuraly in the worth of the case i did no put more that 40 psi cause the gas station metter read around that figure. the tire says to use no more than 44 psi so i think i have to be ok.
now i put the replacement tire and after driving the truck for a while the tire pressure light still on i check the pressure of the tire and is fine(35psi) so i dont really know what still wrong
any idea?
Thanks

I have to check my manual, but I think the spare tire does not have the sensor in it to check tire pressure. If that is true, the computer thinks you still have a tire with low pressure.

It should be built into the rim not the rubber tire. You just replace the tire. The sensor is still in the rim. You will be ok. It should work once you get the tire replaced.

everyone here is absolutely correct. The spare tire does NOT have a pressure sending unit built into the valve stem. You'll have to either have the spare tire mounted on the wheel that had the blowout or have them switch the valve stems. Either way your going to have to get a new tire if the one that blew is trashed. And I also agree about the pressure difference your seeing is no big deal. 35/39, either way that's not what caused your blow-out. You probably hit something in the road or picked up a nail. No matter what happened.....HUGE BUMMER!!

If you have the time the Tire Rack has some of the best deals on tires and I've bought many sets from them. It only takes about 2 days to get it shipped and it will come to your front door or they will drop it off at the place that will be doing the tire change for you.

Hey now guys if you buy from tire rack use the add on the front page. It helps the site we get a percentage. So you actually get it back if you think about it.

It got down to a few degrees below freezing one night last week. I got in my truck early that morning to go to work, rounded the first corner and I got the annoying beep and the low tire light came on. Stopped at the gas station, checked the tires with my dial gauge and they all read about 30, so I aired them up to 35. The light stayed on the rest of the way into work(only a mile or two) After work I went home double checked my pressures, tires were warm so they were all at about 37. Still had the light, it took driving a couple miles at highway speed before the light went out.
I know when I started typing this I had a point that related to this thread, but now it completely escapes me. :roll: If I think of it, I'll come back and let you guys know :?
