Have you had to get air in your tires because the TPMS light came on in your car within the last 30 days?
My van has a slow leak in the right rear tire. I see that light every few weeks. I just need to get a new tire.
Oh yeah. The two tires currently up front are okay. Once I get two new tires on my front wheel drive van and move those back, I’ll be golden. 😊
Happens every autumn.
No, but I have an air pressure reading display option available in my Toyota Tacoma. Checking the readings, I found one of my tires was low. Pumped air into the tire and it slowly dropped again. It had a slow leak caused by a nail; I had it patch repaired at the dealer.
Oh, I see, that makes sense. Just trying to save you money if I can. 😺
That makes sense. If you are planning to replace 3, I would replace them all.
There are plenty of places that will repair it. Costco is $11-$13.
My light comes on when it’s cold.
My thoughts about replacement are also driven by the fact that I need to put two new tires up front. The tread is getting too low.
I’d try a repair first. I had a slow leak, had it repaired and no problems since. It’s well over a year ago.
Every other day for past two weeks..had a nail in the tire. Took it in free repair and free tire rotation.
I want to know that you and your family are safe. I’ve always gotten all four tires replaced.
Man, mines worse than a light. Every time I turn my car on I get 3 microwave beeps and a "flat tire" indicator.
So fucking annoying 🤦🏼♂️
Mine did about two months ago.
I need to fill my tires.
The TPMS light is always on in my car because the front passenger side one broke. I haven’t taken it to the dealership to get replaced yet.
I've only had it trigger once, a few years ago. I had checked the tires at about 50°F, and had to drive into the city a few days later when it was near 20°F. That should have only made a few pounds difference, but a few pounds in that case was more than the 10% it takes to set off the alert. So still plenty of air to drive on without risk of tire or wheel damage, but still, an annoying yellow triangle where my digital speed readout should be. I've learned to set the monitored pressure at exactly the 33 lbs cold recommended for normal driving, regardless of the temperature, then adjust the pressure for the difference between the temperature at that time, and the expected low temperature within the next week (until the next scheduled tire check). The TPMS does not care if the tires are over inflated.
Dude... my daily is a 2007 Tacoma and the TPMS indicators are broke dick. I’m always driving around with that damn light on. I will replace all of them when I get new tires. Which...at my rate of driving...will be years from now...dammit.
Aww, thank you! I just need to rotate and I’ll be good to go. The tread isn’t too bad yet, but with that leak back there I think it’s time.
Do you have enough tread to get 2 for winter?
Which I very much appreciate, thank you! I need to just get 2 new tires up front and rotate those old ones to the back.
It’s butt cold! 🥶
Not yet but it’s coming.
Maybe 7k a year spread out between 4 vehicles.
Had to do it yesterday.
In a few days.
That is much sooner than expected.
Squid, that is next to nothing.
Yes, I agree
How many miles do you normally drive every year?
