I got ~60 at Discount Tire, so 65 is in the ballpark.

Me, too. The frustration is that the alarm thresholds in the BCM (PCM?) are not adaptive. So if I want to run right at the lower limit (say, 32psi, for softer ride) and the reading is off by 2psi, showing 30 to the computer, then the warning light comes on, even tho the tire is actually at a good, safe pressure

I've sometimes wondered why these TPMS systems can be so difficult at times, then it occurred to me that the name may be part of the problem
