I just switched to my winter tires. Put the steel rims from my 05 on, but they don't have tps sensors. So, now the truck is telling me there is a problem etc and the yellow light on the dash is lit. Is it ok to run the thing like that for a few months? Will it do any harm? It is a PIA and I might look into another set of rims if I can't stand it. If I do run another set of rims, what is the setback on the stock aluminum rims that come on my truck? 2016 f350. 18". Thanks, Nick.

It won't do any harm. But it is a PITA.

Might want to check out adding pressure sensors to the 05 steel rims, might cost less then you think.

That thought had crossed my mind. Only downside to the damn things is they are so heavy compared to the aluminum ones.

Looks like it's around $100/wheel to add them. Cheaper than new rims though

Specifically, the PITA is that every time you start the truck, you’ll have to wait until the alarm chime gives you the three warnings, then push the reset button to cancel the message. :icon_mad: Once reset, the message and chime is off until the truck gets turned off. If any harm is done, it’s not apparent after 50,000 miles of doing this.

I'll have to see if this can be turned off with FORScan. Since it is concidered a safety issue, some shop won't touch it. It is tied to the AS BUILT profile to your VIN, if you had a dually their would be no problem.

I just talked to my mechanic. They can install them and sync them with the truck. They actually will somehow use the ID from my stock wheels so the truck won't know the difference between summer and winter wheels. That is going to beat having to hit reset button every time I'm in the truck.
