Extreme Motorsports in Brentwood did a leveling kit and 295/55-20s on my 2015.5 3500HD. They didn't find any TPMS sensors in the wheels and are rather confused ... as am I.

On the dash, the TPMS light that comes on at startup looks like it has a line through it.

I looked on the window sticker and on Chevy's website when configuring a new 3500HD; I couldn't find it listed as a stock feature, and doesn't seem to be offered as an option.

Any idea what's going on with TPMS in Chevy's newest truck?

That's really weird....I did a 2015 denalli HD 3500 a few weeks ago and it deffinately had sensors, I remember seeing the tire pressures when scrolling through the menu

What a waste of time with tire sensors. They suck
I agree completely. Made for idiots who can't take 10 seconds before getting into their vehicle to see if everything looks good.

After spending the day at the track in my M3, the sensors did help. My right rear picked up a nail at some point and was slowly leaking air. I was able to get a much earlier warning on the freeway from the TPMS than I would have felt otherwise.

... but I will admit, they have been much more of a PITA than they made up for in that one case.

As someone who used to work at a tire shop, I agree. Another thing to thank Ford & Bridgestone for.

Most advisers (AAA, mechanics, etc.) advise checking once a week. A slow leak can be caught & a big leak will be spotted easily. It's sad that some people look to the government to save them from themselves.

On a more positive note, GM actually had a great idea for a low tire pressure system. On some of their midsize FWD cars, the ABS sensor speed was read & if one of them was ~10% off from the other 3, the light came on. That would help out massively with wheel/tire upsizing.
