Another rims thread...

Kinda off topic, but is the TPMS necessary/needed?

After driving from KY to south FL during the winter, my rear driver side tire was at 23 PSI. Nothing in the info center or the cluster let me know.

Is this not extremely low or did the TMPS just say **** it?

Make sure it is sync'd. But mine usually goes off if it gets below like 20-25 psi. Somewhere in that range. Not needed but the low tire light could be a nuisance. Plus it is helpful.

If his TPMS wasn't sync'd he would have the light.

Another rims thread...

Ah okay, I was wondering because when I bought new rims I was asked if I wanted the TPMS mounted on the new ones for a fee of course, and I declined because of the previous lack of performance.

Generally tire pressure low level alarm is set for 25% below the required tire pressure. For example 25% of 35 lbs = 8.75 lbs.
35 - 8.75 = 26.25 lbs.
However, different tires require different pressures, so I'm GUESSING that different sensors could have different trip values.
Never saw anything about different values for different tires but makes sense to me.

EDIT: Researching this further and finding nothing on matching tire pressure requirements, I'm thinking that perhaps the synchronizing process may use the tire pressure at the time it is performed.
I could never understand why the need to identify the location of each tire when the monitor doesn't display what the pressure is in each tire.

Maybe if there is less actual tire. Such as the sizes 17 in vs 20 in and such.

It also matters whether the tire is cold or warm, as tire pressure will be lower when the tire is cold (more likely to trip a TPMS if a bit low), but as you drive and the tire warms up, pressure will rise and the TPMS light might actually go out if already on. I've seen this happen personally.

This of course does not apply to Roger Goodell's World of Football, where the the dark arts of Physics and Chemistry do not come into play.

I have had this happen. My rear drivers side tire has a slow leak that requires 1-2psi be added each month. It's right at 30 days before the sensor trips. However if it's near the threshold it will turn off after driving a few miles. I had it come on one morning when I was running late for work. Checked and it said 28psi. I knew it was ok for the 5mi drive so I didn't fill it. As I pulled into the parking lot the light turned off.

Don't forget to take the little retainer clip off the stud holding your rotor on before you get them out on. I can see the thread now.

"I just can't win, new wheels vibrate"

😎 if you don't remove the little clips your going to get a vibration as if the wheels are not balanced as I'm sure these do not have the relief cuts on the back side of the wheels.

Do all mustangs have this clip? I installed my 19's two years ago before i heard about the clip and i have no vibration.
Should i remove it anyways?

If your wheels look like the ones Kevin posted and you have the clip (one per rotor on a single stud) I'd remove them. Your wheel isn't bolted up square if this is the case. Stock wheels have the relief cuts. So no issues.

They are flat on the back. No relief cuts. Make sure your little retainer clips are removed sir

Here is what the clip looks like. Note how it's on the stud (bottom left stud). Note how your wheel looks on the back where the stud goes through the wheel. You can imagine that will not allow the wheel to sit flush on the rotor.

If a shop mounts the wheels do yourself a favor and watch them. Make sure they take those clips off. I had to make another trip back because they didn't do so after they stated its one of the first things they look for. Smh.. got discounts out of it anyway

Thanks for the pics, I bought the 2010 GT premium wheels from AM. I guess if I haven't had any problems the last couple of years I must be O.K? From what it sounds like if there was some sort of an issue its something I'd feel instantly on the highway.
The next time I rotate my tires I'll be sure to look for that and remove them if they are there.

Looks nice. Aren't you anxious to put those on? Go put at least those 3 on right now, then you will only have to do one later! Lol

No problem.

You must have had them removed already before they were installed. I can't imagine you wouldn't have felt the vibrations by now. But like you said take a look next chance you get.

I am anxious. I called the shop and they said if I get the 4th rim before they close tomorrow that they can get me in this week. Cuz i will have to drop my car off before the end of business tomorrow.

Very nice! I know when I put my rims on I was like damn these make a huge difference in the look I was going for. What's next on your list again after this? I can't keep track of your novel sized mod list! Haha

I try not to keep a complete list of every little thing anymore. Lol. I have spent more money making this car one of the nicest V6s in my area i lost track of the dollar amount.

The money that is going towards my AM trip was going towards a sound system for the car. But now idk when i will get that done.

I will never have enough money all at once for a procharger. So idk....

Last rim w/ black acorn lug nuts and locking nuts came in today. So dropping car off tonight. Should be ready by Friday or Monday.

UPS guy was complimenting my car. Said he had a 13 v6 and traded it in for a 15 GT. Said he has never saw a 13/14 6 with hood vents. Asked me if it was a 5.0 at first. lol
