According to the Tech's Reference Book, the light will go on at 27.26 psi, and turn of when the PSI returns to at least 30.17 or higher. Have your dealer check the sensors...if you have changed tires/wheels, maybe there's a re-calibration that need to take place?

My TPMs work great on my armada, anything below 30 PSi they go on.
#38 of 55 Snow and ice tires???
Dec 31, 2006 (5:12 am)
Anyone have a recommendation for a snow and ice tire for the B9? My original tires are bald at 25,000 miles. I need a superior all season tire or a true snow and ice application for New Hampshire driving conditions.

I have a set of Pirelli Scorpions Snow and Ice tires coming Tues from Tire Rack. Discount tire didnt carry them.
For here in Pittsburgh we dont get snow then we get snow then none...ect... so I wanted the same size tire as the OEM because most of the time it would be wet or dry driving. Instead of going down one size in width.
I had the Pirelli's on my Pacifica and they worked well in the snow and dry condition. they are H rated or you can get V rated. Probably better 100% snow only tires out there but for my 50/50 wet rain vs snow driving this works and gives me performance I like when driving most of the time.

Funny you should mention the Scorpions... I've been researching since my last post, and they look like the ones to go with for mixed driving. Thanks!

I use the Sotto Zeros on my subarus, not sure if they are available in the size for the Tribeca, however the Pirellis overall are great tires.

Go to Tirerack.com I got Michelin Latitude X-ice from there on 17" alloy wheels. They look great and are very quiet tires. I had Arctic Alpins on my old Forester and they were great tires...hence the reason I got the X-ice. I think the $99 alloy's from Tirerack look better than the OEM wheels.

i got 20" black wheels and Toyo tires way back within first 6 mo of having my B9.
now i wish i had nad might still do 22" wheels with possibly some Pirelli Zero Asymmetrico tires unless i just wait to do the 22 thing on my next car. hopefully a newer MDX but dont want to make same mistake i did with B9 and get first year it comes out though mdx is just redesign not brand new model like b9 was and i got screwed on the first year cargo cover etc but mostly just want the mdx price to go down once second year of redesign is released.
#44 of 55 Wheel substitutes for Tribeca

I have a B9 on order, with the special edition package. The dealer says the factory is out of the alloy wheels (18 x 8.0) so I get to buy some new wheels, which is great b/c I can dress up the car a bit. I've found some wheels that are really cool, but the closest size they come in to the OEM is 18 x 7.5. I am admittedly ignorant about offset sizes, etc., so can someone tell me if these will fit the Tribeca ok? The wheel supplier says no one has tried to fit these on a Tribeca yet, so they say I might need 'spacers'. What's that about? Also, is is possible to go bigger in wheel size? The same wheels that I like come in 20 x 8.5.

Always use the proper offset and wheel width as the stockers, spacers are dangerous and the inproper offset will cause pre-mature wheel bearing issues that won't be covered by the warranty.
