    I got Nitto 555R installed on factory rim over the weekend and just noticed TPMS solid light and my rear driver side tire show -- (I check the tire has 35 PSI and recommendation is 32) - Should I bring it down to 32 and drive around town for 20-30 minutes? Do I need to drive on certain speed..

    Any suggestion

    It can take a bit to start registering. Give it some more millage.

    Yes you should do that. Have you upgraded to nitrogen yet in tires?

    I don't think it worth while to have nitrogen in your drs if your really going to use them to there potential because your going to drop the tire pressure to hook up then add air to drive on the street. imo

    nitrogen is more stable than oxygen, less condensation and provides stability in colder temps. There are a lot of things that are worse to deal with than a TPMS light but it is annoying

    I've never had them take more than a couple of miles to register even when swapping wheel sets. They may have wrecked the TPMS when they dismounted/mounted your tires.
    Another possibility is interference with the TPMS signal if you have any aftermarket electronics such as cell phone charger, USB charger, anything plugged into the OBDII port like a Trinity, aftermarket HIDs, etc.

    Right tire came on right away... Left one is not coming on... I might go to their shop to check it out. But I don't see any damage at all (Again, they are very reputated shop and they had 3 Corvette and I saw 1970 Z28 - oh boy I couldn't take picture of this beauty since I left my phone in other car)

    No aftermarket product other than iphone usb charger.

    Do you have drive the car at certain speed or something? I was checking online and it shows that you have drive 20-30 miles at 50mph to reset. I've not done that yet except few 0-60 run lol

    I was reading online that tinting could interfere? Is that real?

    Unplug the charger and try it.
    Normally I drive about 2 miles at 55 MPH and it resets/starts reading. This is true for 3 Mopars we have/had.

    up to 10 minutes above 25 mph.

    metallic tint can interfere.

    Metallic tinting can certainly affect the fobik range and radio reception. Not sure about the TPMS because the receiver is outside the car in the wheelwell unless they changed it.
