I legitimately laughed out loud at this comment!
I agree I laughed too. Good use of harshness.

Seriously though OP, I do not think he is just making a suggestion.

It doesn't seem to tell you what the PSI is tho. My 2015 f-150 does on each tire, but my 2016 Focus can't? Unless I am an idiot (good chance) I think that's b.s.

Good chances if your tire is low enough to throw the light on...you can see it visually.
I guess that makes sense, and I am coming from 10 ply truck world. You can't tell as easily on those tires which one is low, especially if it's only a few psi. The real advantage to knowing how low, is I can tell if it's just weather change, or if I actually have a leak. Now you can tell all that by getting out of the car and measuring the psi etc... but I guess I am lazy and want a computer to do it?

Dude...that's not how it works. The PSI on the tire is the MAX PSI the tire can take and that's dangerous as hell to run them at max PSI. The PSI you should be running on your tires is on a label in the driver side door jamb or on the door itself. I can't remember the location.

WTF are you talking about. Obviously I'm not running my tires at 80psi you clown, I am talking about monitors on the truck, nothing about max psi. I actually never mentioned the tires...Anyways the info is on the door jam towards the back of the seat, it recommends 36psi for the focus. Thanks for your inane response tho.

Settle down, buddy. I read your post that I quoted as you're getting you're tire pressure info off the sidewall of the tire. My fault. No need to go all prick mode.

Not really....Personal experience with my 2016. (One of the tires developed a VERY small leak which I had road hazard protection on). TPMS kicks in at approx 28psi. That is really not enough to visually detect. Get a good tire meter because TPMS won't tell you which tire it is, so you have to make the rounds.

I also suggest one of those 12V compressors you can keep in the back with the spare. When I had the small leak, before I took it in, I had TPMS kick in twice in 7 days. Each time I was driving around looking for an air station. And in SoFla, the air stations here are complete crap. They're either broken, or require half a roll of quarter or something else stupid. 40 bucks for a small compressor you can fit in the back and you are never without air.

I agree I was a bit aggressive, but I said I was an idiot, not a retard so I was a little miffed at how dumb you thought I was! Either way NBD and not worth fighting over! Enjoy the weekend!

Right on. The problem is there really are people that are that dumb. I used to do tires and I've seen a bunch of crazy stuff.

Knowing which tire is low is useless? Okay.
You'll see it visually.
I actually disabled the TPMS because when I take the car to the track, I have my track wheels in the back and it just so happen that they have a TPMS sensor and the car gets confuzzled.
Granted that I could remove the TPMS on those and track the car like that, I don't like to see the light on the dashboard all the time.

Plus, in my opinion, one should check his tire pressure at every fuel up, or every other one. I have my trusty tire pressure gauge in my glove box.

Enthusiasts should be checking pressures at least once a month, but I suspect that isn't happening. You normally won't see a dramatic change in the tires look at 28 psi, you just have to check all four tires to see which one is the offending tire. Get a GOOD tire gauge, not the cheap $1 ones at Walmart checkout stand. I use an Autometer, a great, accurate, metal cased guage, about $21 from Amazon. A set of tires is about $900, no reason to cheapen out in maintaining them. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.
