Tire Calibration Setting?

I know there is the TPMS reset button on the dash board for tire pressure but isn't there also a tire calibration feature buried in the settings somewhere? Maybe I'm thinking of my 09 6. My wife's Lexus has a similar feature. Coulda swore I saw it somewhere.....

What do you mean by tire calibration? Since the TPMS is based on the wheel speed sensors measuring how fast the tires are rotation, that would be what you want to reset with new tires. I just did it when I went to larger 245/45r19's and it worked fine.

In my 2009 6 iGT and in my wife's RX, there is a tire size calibration reset separate from the TPMS. Resetting TPMS tells the car that the rotational speeds based on the current PSI is what the correct "pressure" is. But, you could put 240/30 R20s on the car and TPMS can still tell if a tire is low because of rotational differences although the speedo would be off. Tire calibration reset syncs the speedo. Tire calibration is sensitive enough that it was recommended to reset occasionally to account for tire wear and to be sure and do it when installing new tires even if they were the OEM size. I was looking for it because I just put new tires on my '16. Maybe the 3rd gen doesn't have it. I can't find it in the owner's manual.

Damn that's exactly what I need now that I've gone to a taller 245/45/19. Update us if you find something!

AFAIK there's nothing in the settings (on the 3.0 gens, not sure about the 3.5 gens) that would allow for setting the tire size to reconfigure the speedo and calibration. That always gets me in the winter because the snow tires I found are slightly too small so the first few weeks the stupid thing keeps telling me my pressure is low. Eventually it figures it out though, but it would be nice to be able to change that setting.

With this new size, do you have any problem or rubs with the body?
You change in the series rims?

It depends on what offset your wheels are. As long as you run a wheel with a high offset you won't run into any issues.

That will work fine. How wide is the wheel? aim for 9" for a 245 tire.
