    Does anyone know if the psi needs to be within a certain range on all the tires (including the spare when applicable) or can the the system be reset to read different pressures? I thought I read once that the pressures needed to be within a certain range of each other (like 4psi) for the dash light not to trigger. The reason I ask is if I keep my stock spare (265/70/16) and go to load range "E" 265/75/16 tires I've read the correct pressure for the load range "E" is 40psi. Being that my spare is at 32 psi will that be an issue or would I need to over inflate the spare to 40 psi? The spare is the BFG rugged trail and the new tires will be BFG A/T.

    If i recall , when u reset the sensors , they need to be 80% or more of that pressure , lower will cause it to go off. Bottom line if u had front at 32 and rear at 28 it wont care what pressure each tire is as long as its at 80% or more. As long as you have reset to the numbers you mentioned you should be ok.

    What in the world are you buying "E" rated tires for? Way overkill for a Tacoma.
