I want to mount wintertires without tpms sensors on my 2015 cla SB...
How will the board computer respond? Only 1 warning at the departure, and a warning light, or will there be a ding dong alarm constantly?
the mercedes sensors are not available in the shop at this moment.
thanks, philip

strange, could it be that your 2014 car has no sensors, and the board computer makes a calculation based on the abs sensors?

No, it is not accurate, but it is a big help. It lets you know when your tire(s) are low and needs air. Not perfect, but pretty darned good IMO. Tire gauge will tell
you what it really is.

I was told that if the back left tire is low to check all of the tires.
I don't understand that logic. It's probably good to check all the tires regularly, regardless. If one is low, then it would be good to check them all, no matter what tire it is.

Yes, pretty darn close, usually within 1# of my digital gauge. I look at the readings everyday and verify them each week, especially this time of year when cold air temps can drive down the pressure. Even just being on the side of the car facing the sun can raise tire pressure.

Ditto ditto ditto ... wish we could mod it to read xx.x so the +-0.5 doesnt mess up readings.

You are the man! Can you come out here and check my tires every day, because I'm certainly not doing that. I'm happy I have four tires on the thing. ( I do check the tire pressure once in awhile, usually when the phase of the moon is right.)

Please don't misunderstand, the daily check consists of pushing the left arrow 3 times, the down arrow 2 times, and the ok button once. Only once a week do I get out the actual gauge, usually when I am applying my midweek tire shine. Ok, kinda anal about shiny tires too.

Oh ok I feel better now I use the 0.1psi meter and correlate the gauge so there ??
Wonder if theres a very satin tire finish instead of the shiny stuff? I am just the opposite dont like shiny rubber ?

jmc, Looks like you need to double check "dealer confirmed."
