How to turn off "low tire" ?

I've changed rims, and I didn't put tire pressure sensors form stock rims, so on the gauges all the time is annoying "check system" or "low tire" and red triangle... how to turn it off ?

You can't- it'll stay there until the sensors are in range and reading correctly.

If you don't put the sensors in the wheels you're using now and you don't do the pipe bomb trick, you can temporarily get rid of the check system lights by having your car on or in ACC mode parked by your stock rims with the sensors in them. The car will pick up the signals and temporarily clear the lights.

The problem with that method is that the TPMS warning light will come on again. It's not a legitimate fix.

Yeah I know it's not a legitimate fix and hence I said it will temporarily clear it in case he wanted to have the annoying message removed for the time being.

i've tried to drive my stock my without tpms, and the i drove for about 50 miles and the came back up, and I still drive it for about 30 miles more, and the goes off completely, and now still not back up. You keep trying to drive without the tpms to see if the light would goes away?
