    i just put new tires and wheels on my taco (285/70/17) they put new tire pressure sensors in the wheels when they did the install, now when i am corning hard, (takes weight off of the front inside tire) sometimes i my truck will sound off a series of short beeps followed by what feels like i am hydro-planing with that front inside tire. any ideas? this is on dry pavement. any ideas would be super....thanks

    Sounds like traction control operation to me. Does your truck have vsc? When you hear the beeping are there lights flashing on your dash? If so, the beeping is probably just telling you the system is active and is doing its job. I don't think your TPMS has anything to do with it.

    Generally when you use bigger tires you have to have get it reset so it learns the new parameters.
