Very aggravating to pull over on an Interstate to check tires and nothing wrong.
It took a little bit to learn what was 'normal' and set the tireminder appropriately...
If I use the default of setting to the pressure I am running - the inner rears always alarm for high pressure... So I set them a couple of PSI higher to compensate for my 'normal'... Too high and you will get the underpressure warning starting out.
I think I have a happy system now - and like knowing what is happening - especially on the toad where I doubt I would feel a problem until wayyyy too late.
