My TPMS alarmed as soon as I started the Jeep the first time after installing the new wheels..
What pressure is in your 35s? If the pressure is below 32# it should be alarming. Otherwise it Sounds like they put TPMS in for you then.. You may be able to tell by the valve stem.

I havent checked the pressure in the new tires yet and i didn't even look at the valve stem yet. The tires were delivered yesterday in the pouring rain and I was so excited I put them on in a torrential downpour. My wife shook her head at me as I was out trimming my pinch seam with my cut off wheel while it was POURING and blowing wind like crazy.

Checked tires and they were damn near 40psi. Ride was very stiff. Dropped down to 27psi and ride was MUCH better. Drove a few miles and sure as S$&T the TPM light comes on. Swear that 4wheelparts.com installed monitors when they shipped tires and rims

It doesn't matter if they're in there or not if you're running 27 psi. The stock system is set for 37 psi (on a Rubi at least), and the warning light comes on when any tire is below 32 I think. You need to buy something like a Procal or flashcal to set the pressure to a lower level. When I changed wheels and tires, it was cheaper to buy a flashcal and set the pressure to zero than to replace the TPMS sensors.

Your not following. When they were @ 40psi the light wasn't on. Drive forever that way with no light. Lowered pressure to 27psi and light comes on (as I would expect for a tire with Tpm in it running that low of pressure) I did not think they installed monitors when the mounted the tires on the rims but they must have. I know I need the procal but now instead of setting to zero I can set for 27

My 11 took a long time... I forget exactly how many days, but I think it was way more than 20 miles before it finally registered that the TPMS sensors weren't there anymore. I got excited thinking they'd installed them inadvertently too.
