Cool Tire change message

Today a friend of mine had my tires changed from run flats to Nitto 555's. I still cannot drive because of foot surgery. He just told me that now an error light comes on related to the change, tire pressue low et al. Is this something that needs attention at the dealership or can it be deleted somehow by myself? The car is still under waranty but given that I opted not to replace the run flat tire that was split (a Bridgestone Potenza) at the dealership and have moved on to ordinary tires is this something that they will expense me for?

Anybody have this happen to them?

Bill

Bill,
Hope you recover quickly from the surgery and are back in your car soon! Although TPMS are not mandated in Canada IIRC, you're a lucky guy. Sounds like the Nitto tires were not inflated to the required door placard pressures. Have your friend get an air gauge and match the door pressures, then consult your owner's manual on how to reset the TPMS warning icon. It's a cinch!

You should be ok. Follow the above advice. At least you can reset the TPMS in these cars whereas my son's Nissan truc you cannot without a computer, so the light just stays on depsite having the correct tire pressure at all times I love my BMW!
