I'm not sure about our colorados, but some other vehicles allow you to disable to TPMS reading in the computer.

You might be able to get Autozone to disable it if you can find out where it is in the menu.

Just push the button by the odometer and it'll stay off fo about 30mins. Then just do it again. Sorry I haven't found a better way, but you kinda just get used to pushing the button.

I'd like to know what vehicle let you do this.

Its illegal from what I can remember. Its a federal law to have it.

The reason why no one can disable the TPMS is due to product liability. If an attorney discovers GM or a business disabled or removed any part of the TPMS, they could be sued if a tire fails due to low pressure and causes an accident. GM probably put some sort of code into the BCM to prevent tampering with the TPMS data stream from the wheel sensor. How about putting the sensors back into your new wheels?
The reason why TPMS exists is due to tire failure lawsuits.

This has a familiar theme to it...like Lost. Maybe you can hire John Locke to keep pushing it for you.

Sorry, I really have nothing to contribute, but good luck. See if you can have the tire place attach the old sensors in your new rims somehow

AutoZone does NOT have the ability to do this. I can 100% guarantee it.
