You should use the exact same pressure on the 17" tires as on the 15".

Correct tire pressure chart


There will be a placard on your driver door, or on the rear door on the passenger side, which will list correct tire sizes and pressures. DO NOT EXCEED THE MAXIMUM STATED TIRE PRESSURE FOR YOUR TIRES UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, REGARDLESS OF THE INFORMATION PROVIDED ON THE PLACARD.

2005 grand Cherokee service tire pressure system


I found this on another site, it may help to understand what is happening, I also saw that there is a problem with the valve stems cracking since they're made out of aluminum and causing that problem. Here's the explanation provided on another site:

RodneyJ Answered 6 years ago
If a customer with a 2005 or later DaimlerChrysler vehicle equipped with Tire Pressure Monitoring (TPM) is concerned that the TPM lamp is on continuously, please be sure to inform the customer that the system is in place to warn of a low tire pressure situation, and a system diagnosis may not be required. The customer should be aware of the following: The Tire Pressure Monitoring (TPM) System will warn the driver of a low tire pressure based on the vehicle recommended cold placard pressure (the placard is located on the drivers side B-pillar).
The tire pressure will vary with temperature by about 6.9 kPa (1 psi) for every 6.5 Degrees C (12 Degrees F). This means that when the outside temperature decreases, the tire pressure will decrease - the customer should adjust his tire pressure for this decrease in pressure - please refer the customer to his vehicle owner's manual for information on how to properly inflate his vehicle's tires. The tire pressure will also increase as the vehicle is driven - this is normal and there should be no adjustment for this increased pressure.
The TPM System will warn the driver of a low tire pressure if the tire pressure falls below the low pressure warning threshold for any reason, including low temperature effects.
The TPM System will continue to warn the driver of low tire pressure as long as the condition exists, and will not turn off until the tire pressure is at or above recommended cold placard pressure. Once the low tire pressure warning has been illuminated, the tire pressure must be increased to the recommended cold placard pressure in order for the TPM warning lamp to be turned off. The system will automatically update and the TPM warning lamp will extinguish once the updated tire pressures have been received. The vehicle may need to be driven for up to 10 minutes above 25 kph (15 mph) to receive this information.


FOR EXAMPLE:

A 2006 300 has a recommended cold (parked for more than 3 hours) placard of 207 kPa (30 psi).

If the ambient temperature is 18 Degrees C (65 Degrees F) and the measured tire pressure is 186 kPa (27 psi) the TPM lamp will be OFF.

IF NOTHING IS DONE TO THE AIR PRESSURE IN THE TIRES and the ambient temperature drops to 20 Degrees F (-7 Degrees C) while the vehicle is parked, the approximate tire pressure will be 157 kPa (23 psi) and the TPM lamp will be ON.

IF THE VEHICLE IS DRIVEN TO REACH NORMAL OPERATING TEMPERATURE

WITHOUT ADJUSTING THE AIR PRESSURE and the ambient temperature stays at -7 Degrees C (20 Degrees F), the approximate tire pressure will rise to 186 kPa (27 psi) and the 1PM lamp will be ON.

To turn the TPM lamp OFF the tires must be inflated to the vehicle recommended cold placard pressure.

In order to properly maintain vehicle tire pressure, please refer to the owner's manual for additional information regarding tire inflation.

NOTE :Tire pressure should always be set based on cold inflation tire pressure (defined as the tire pressure after a vehicle has not been driven for more than 3 hours - and in outside ambient temperature).

Seasonal temperature changes will affect tire pressure, and the TPM system will monitor the actual tire pressure in the tire.
If a diagnosis of the system is required (for example, the lamp did not extinguish, or the lamp is flashing), please refer to service information available in TechCONNECT for additional information for TPM diagnosis. Please be aware that if the Wireless Control Module (WCM) is replaced, the TPM placard values may need to be reprogrammed. The TPM placard values do NOT need to be updated if the WCM has NOT been replaced, the TPM placard values are properly set at the factory.

What kind of tires do I use for a 1999 Ford Escort ZX2 2.0 doc motor


Kathy

You can find a list of the recommended tires and pressures on a placard affixed to the driver door / jamb. This placard will also list the weight of the vehicle, and other information too. You should be able to look at the sidewall of the existing tires to determine the size. They will likely be either 185/65-14 or 185/60-15.

I looked at Tirerack.com and input your 1999 Ford Escort ZX2 and got these results. Apparently, two different sizes were standard for this car. They are: 185/65-14 and 185/60-15. The main difference is that one is mounted on a 14 inch rim and the other is mounted on a 15 inch rim (as indicated by the bold number in the size). Determine which size rim (by looking at the tire size you currently have) and replace with one of those listed above. This ONLY applies to factory rims. if they have been changed, all bets are off.

Any reputable tire shop or Automotive tire department (at Sears, etc.) should be able to get this info for you free of charge.

Good luck!

What is the dodge caravan 1999 3.0L V6 base van tire and rim sizes?


This information is listed in your owner's manual and on the driver's door post. But in case the placard is missing and you do not have an owner's manual, the OEM size is dependent on the size wheels installed. The correct sizes are:
15" - 215/65-15
16" - 215/65-16
17" - 215/60-17

What size tires originally on jms 1995 jimmy


There were a few different sizes originally available on that vehicle depending on options. If it is 2wd it could have come from the factory with a 205-75-15 or a 235-70-15 tire. If it's 4wd it could have come with a 235-70-15 or 235-75-15 tire. There should be a tire placard on the door jam of the drivers door stating original equipment tire sizes and recommended inflation pressures.

What is the proper tire size for a 2000 caravan


If you want to know the correct tire size for your vehicle. Open the drivers door and look on the edge of the door under the latch. You should find a data plate that will tell you size of tire for your van and proper air pressure for front and back tires.

How much air do I put in 2003 Accent tires


The proper tire pressure for the front and rear tires should be shown on a small sticker (placard) inside the driver door jam. Open the driver side door, and look for a sticker that shows the manufacturing date, and other information, such as the proper tire size, load capacity, tire pressure, etc.

The placard pressure is what you should ALWAYS set your tire pressure to, unless you have installed different tires/wheels than came with the car when new (and then it's anyone's guess).

The placard pressure is what the manufacturer has decided is the best pressure based on their testing for that specific vehicle. Whenever I have tire work done, I always asks the shop to inflate the tires to placard pressure. You'd be surprised, they often set the pressure wrong!
