Not Sure :
Is there a Freaking Way to Turn Off that - BS - TPMS / I mean really It warns someone when there is like 20 psi left in the Tire - ( Get Freakin Real ) Ddddaaaaaa - I
Think My Tire might be low . Yeah Think !


Let Me say - I'm not knocking Your - per-say TPMS , I just don't like the way it was Jammed down out throats , due to Socker Moms not checking their
Air Pressure . The they put an Expensive Item out to - don't Warranty the Item Properly and also allow it to - throw warnings a little Too Late .

Yeah, it was a deal for sure! Good thing her big brother scours craigslist all day looking for deals for her! :p And EngTech - agreed that TPMS are annoying and more of a hassle than anything. Here in VT, a shop won't pass a car for inspection if the TPMS light is on (say if one has winter wheels without TPMS - no dice). Stupid!
