TPMS Question

I have a TPMS that I am looking to install on my X213. It monitors both tire pressure and temp. I need to program it for its alarm feature. I'm not sure what high temp setting should I have the alarm set for? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

The sidewall of the tire will have a rating, there should be a database (not sure if it's w/ NHTSA or just the tire manufacturer) referring the numbers to a temperature.

Depending on ambient temperature and road heat you could likely see temps above 100 degrees in the summer. If it's +90 out and full sun, afternoon the road could be 100+ degrees resulting in a temp above 100. Sunny side vs shade side will also result in warmer temps as will load.

Pressure goes up to about 93-95 on each of my 80 PSI cold tire.

Running vs traffic could set them off if your in extreme heat FYI.

I've had two different TPMSs over about 5 years. Personally I don't think the temperature reading has much value. If the TPMS was internal, yes, it would have value but a sensor stuck on the end of an extender or even on the valve stem itself isn't going to measure internal tire temperature. It's reading is going to be closer to outside air temperature than internal air temperature. I set mine plenty high to guarantee they never go off. That would be around 120 degrees.

Thanks everyone. Hoppers4 I was thinking along the same lines, hence my post. My initial instinct wss to disable the temp alarm but with the TPMS I have its not an option. As it stands now I am waiting for the manufacturer to reply to an email because one sensor doesn't register and the monitor won't cycle from temp back to psi. This thing was given to me but my neighbor so I don't know that much about it.

My TST system states that the temperature default is 157 deg.f which is the Michelin standard. It says tires typically fail at temps between 180 and 200 deg. f.

I have never had one over 120 deg in 4 years of use.

I am more worried about pressure (lack of it really) than I am of temperature. Almost all tire issues are caused by a LOW tire pressure.

The pressure gets real low fast when they blow.
