New LT tires

I just replaced my P tires with Michelin LTX M/S2 tires. What an improvement in ride and handling!

Thanks to the many people with LT tire advice on the forum!

Before, I had Goodyear Wrangler HP from the dealer P265/70R17 M+S. I never liked them, they hydro planed and unless inflated to 40psi it was like driving on balloons while towing ...

The Michelins are inflated to 45psi (LR E, max 80psi). My TPMs wail about the pressure since they trigger on 45psi for the P tires which inflate to 30psi per the door sticker.

I will likely get the dealer to adjust the TPM and run the Michelins at 50psi which is what Michelin calculated for the correct load on the Suburban.

Can't beat Costco's price and installation package.

Beerjay. I would get that changed to 60 PSI just in case you need to up the pressure at some point, the low pressure point should be at 45.

Speaking of Beer, have one for me at the tick or in the Valley. Lived in Nepan 1997 to 2000

Cheers!

I'll set the tires at 45-50psi inflation and the sensors at +/- 15psi from that or what the service manager suggests per your note. It's not settable per the tech in the factory programming but the tech said he has been able to figure out a way to change it.
Thanks! Tip of the pint to you! Now looking for somewhere warmer to quaff a few...
