Cool 2008 Mustang

I have a 2008 Mustang that I recently purchased. I have another set of rims with snow tires from my previous Mustang that Big O Tires said I can use on my 2008. They mounted them yesterday and I took off, later realizing the Tire indicator was on. I checked tire pressure and added some air. Indicator is still on. Now after reading up on it I found of about the TPMS system. Something I trusted BIG O should have known.

Now I am wondering where to go from here. Also, I am wondering if it would do damage to the system if I just drove for the snow season with the indicator light on?

It won't damage anything, just an annoyance with the light on.

On my 2007 the sensor is in the tire valve. Probably the same on a 2008. So you could have the valves changed to the right ones if the light bothers you.

I'm glad my 2005 doesn't have the TPS sensors!!! Seems like a hassle.

+1. No sensors in the winter tires/wheels. No big deal. Just hit the reset button.

TPMS is a pain in the azz, forced down the consumers throat. I check my tires regularly. I don't need some POS system to tell me I'm down to 26 PSI or less. Hell, I add air when mine are below 30 PSI and that TPMS system doesn't help squat for that.
