#30 of 53 Pacifica, new tires and wheels
May 28, 2007 (12:51 pm)
I have an 04 Pacifica. I replaced the stock wheels with 22" aftermarket wheels. The new wheels have the wireless tire pressure sensors, however, the dashboard menu reads "service tire pressure system soon". Has anyone had a similar experience? Any suggestions? Thanks for any help

Did someone say tires?
Only place to buy tires is at www.tirerack.com. Been using them for 15 years. I also race, so tires are a big part of what I need.
I have the 19" rims on my Pacifica. There are ONLY two tire options made right now for these rims. I hope there are more options in the future.
As far as tires lasting and rotations etc.... I belong to the school that tire rotations are often a waste. The key is having a propper alignment. I have 70k miles on a 500 hp Mustang and have never, not once rotated a tire. In fact, I can't, because the front and rears are a different size - lol. You should check the wear and that will tell you a lot.
Also, keep the pressure up. I run my Pac at about 40 lbs of air. The ride is a bit stiffer, but you will get slightly better mpg.
I am not saying that you should not rotate them, just that you don't need to get carried away especially if you have to pay for the rotations.
As far as the rims, if you have chrome ones, only get them balanced where they use 3-D style weights that go inside the rim. The old-school weights that they use from the factory will ruin the rim edges over time.

Same school of thought here, i never rotate tires, i keep the car aligned by checking it out periodically. I actually have never owned a car where i did rotate the tires, and have not had any issues at all. Lots of miles on sets of tires for the most part. Unless I hit something like a big rock, logs, or a curb after fishtailing out of control.

rfee. I did the exact same thing except I replaced with 20" wheels on my '04. You are stuck! There is nothing that I have found that can be done. I even went to Chrysler about the problem and they tell me it is a "safety issue". That's why you can't turn off the system message. In NC the law says you MUST have your lights on if you have your windshielf wipers on....but you can disable that in the Pacifica. What it is is a legal protection for Chrysler and the tire Manufacturers. These things have been put on since the Bronco rollover issue. So far, I can't find any way around it. I just put my originals back on and the damn thing still does it. Took it in and paid $85 for a diagnostic test to tell me that one of the sensors had gone bad and it would cost $220 to replace.
So, I just ride around with the silly message. Don't seem right that you can't get to any other messages. But the warnings such as door ajar, etc will still show.

I just had Nokians installed on my wife's Saab.....the tires are awesome. They are apparently the only all-season tire with a severe snow tire rating and are warrentied by Nokian for 50k miles. Now, here is the catch....to keep the warranty they need to be rotated every 5k miles....dam. At least the rotations are free and I will just get the oil done at the same time.
If Nokian made these puppies in a 19", they would be on the Pac tomorrow.

I had a similar problem on my 04...I had to replace the front lower control arms and the gaskets and that took care of the problem.

Anybody know if a full size spare tire will fit under a 2007 with dual exhaust?
