    80 psi max tires

    So. Ford has decided you cannot change the tire pressure alarm settings in the new trucks. So currently my choice is to run garbage tires. Or listen to the alarm. Anyone know of a 35”x20 tire that is rated more than 65 psi max?

    Every Ford dealer has the ability to lower your TPMS pressure thresholds. Some dealers will not do it, some will do it for a small fee, and if you have a good relationship with your own dealer they will do it for free.
    You can also do this yourself, along with modifying a ton of other features on your truck by using Forscan. Here's the link:

    Remove sensors from each wheel--mount in an "air" box--vessel of some sort and run your tires at your desired pressure. Example use a piece of black pipe capped at both ends

    Yes it would work but you loose the use of the tpms... go to a good ford dealer and get them to adjust the limit. Zender did mine.

    On a 2017 f350? I used to get all my other trucks reprogrammed. But they said 2017 is different. And they are a great dealer.

    That trick no longer works.
    Has not worked on ford's for quite some time.
    If you buy an sct tuner you can set them to whatever you want.

    Except it will read that it had a tuner. And no matter what, if there is an issue Ford will not cover it. No matter the dealer.
