I imagine so. 80 lbs sounds ginormous! I would check with the dealer, try to get it adjusted.

SOURCE: the car rides rough.

Dear Alban: You may not like the answer, but the reality of the issue is this: The lower the profile the tire is, the less time there is for irregularities in the road to be absorbed. Low profile tires have very stiff sidewalls which equates into little in the way of flexing. The car was designed for 15" wheels with a totally different profile tire. There is always a trade off with ride and handing traits when big changes are made with wheels and tires. The big rims and low profile tires are the rage right now and this is a very big problem that I run across when cars come into my shop and customers complain about the ride and road noise. Whether it is a 300ZX or a Mercedes, makes no difference, I still get the same complaint. Some cars display the problem to a slight degree and others, it is very pronounced in. There is not a shock or strut in the world that will solve this problem. Your only solution if you can't live with the ride of a log wagon, is to get rid if the wheels and get something with a tire that has some distance between the road and the rim. mybunkey

SOURCE: tire shop says tire wear is due to bad rear struts

you need to replace only the shock cartridges.  Also have the tires rebalanced.
When you receive advice from this website you have to understand that without the item in front of us, we are only able to provide "a best guess" as to what the problem might be based on you description of the defect.  If you haven't described a clear and precise description of the defect you decrease the chances of an accurate reply.  Thank you.

Don't go to the dealer, unless you just have too much money. Call around to tire shops in your area and see if anyone has a "Bar-Tech" tool or a similar device that will reset your sensors for you and HUGE savings.

Hello.

Do you have a full-size spare tire? If so, it too is checked via the Tire Pressure Warning System. Perhaps it is low, this is quite commonly omitted when setting tire pressures. If you have a temporary spare tire, it is not checked. If you have no full-size spare, one of the TWPS sensors may have been damaged by your tire changer. This can happen very easily, if the changer is not careful whilst dis-mounting the tires. A Toyota dealership has a special service tool that will check each of the sensors for output, while on the car. If a sensor is found to be bad, the tester will find it.

Check tire pressure, 32 in rear no more than 35 in front. You can bump up rear when your hauling something but run it lower when empty.

How do you reset the tire pressure light on the dash of a 2008 dodge ram 2500?


Look on the inside of the door.It should tell you what the proper pressure is for the front and back tires.I do believe it is about 70-80 psi for that class of truck.Once you have inflated the tires to proper pressure,the light should go out on it's own.Sometimes it is necessary to drive the vehicle for awhile so the air can expand.If that does not work,have the TPMS checked by a tire distributor.

Did anyone inspect the shock absorbers? Run the tires at the lower air pressure limit unless you are hauling heavy loads. Have the rear wheel alignment checked--it could have a bent axle housing. Check the rear universal joint and drive line for any damage. Did the truck, when new, have this problem? Is there any strange noise occurring when this happens? Hope some of this helps!

Tire pressure monitor light staying on


the dealer will have to do it its a program in the car computer that is set up to monitor tire pressure since you changed the pressure the computer knows the change and is letting you know there is a possible leak.you can have it altered at the dealer only.

Tire pressure monitoring system needs service since it stays on. I had tires rotated recently an8d there were warnings. I had them reajust tire pressures 80 back and 55 front. A new light came on that...


Check to see if the sensors are reconnected. If they are, lower rear tire pressure to 55 to 60 and recheck status light. You will have to turn the engine off and back on to reset.

That is a stretch but it has worked for me on other Chev models.

P.S. Confirm 55 x units mbar KPa Psi with tire pressure gauge.

Resetting the tire pressure indicator on a chevy


Typically a tire pressure monitoring system uses an indirect measurement, and only measures the differences between the pressure in all of your tires. It does this by monitoring the speed at which the wheels are rotating. If one of the tires has low pressure, it will have to spin faster than the others, because the tire is partially flat, and the diameter of the tire is smaller.
If you are running different tire pressures in the front and back tires, then it might trigger the light to come on.
This might also be due to uneven tire wear or different size tires on the front and back.
Check the tire wear, and temporarily run equal tire pressure in the front and rear. It might take a few miles for the light to reset, so give it some time.
