I took this into consideration because I have the stock rims but my when I replaced the stock tires, I replaced them with a slightly wider performance tire. I'm unsure of the actual size but its not stock. So the bigger tire means there is going to be more internal area inside the tire, with that in mind, I assume that the Tire pressure inside the tire is going to be slightly less than the original smaller tires.
My logic is this. take a square table and put 32 pounds evenly distributed on it. Take a larger square table and put the same 32 pounds evenly distributed on it as well
Which one feels lighter? If the tables are equal weight, then the second one should feel lighter because the weight is distributed over a larger area.
The same concept should apply to the inside pressure of the tires.
Maybe I'm completely wrong about this concept. Someone with knowledge of Physics is probably yelling curse words in German at the computer as they read this.
Either way, I have learned to live with the dummy light for the time being. Sometime soon, before I have to go back to school, after winter break, I am going to take it into the 'stealership' and try and get this issue solved once and for all... Until then, this is all the light I can shed on this issue....
