Unhappy I searched and now I ask

So, I just filled the tires with air 2 days ago. I was driving around town on a full charge and I was down to 2 miles left on EV. I turned the car off came back out and when I turned it on the TPMS warning light came on. I went to diag and pressed Tires, nadda! Pressed it again, then double tapped it, tapped it all over and over, NADDA!

Karma glitch I guess (530 update BTW). Was I doing this right? I searched the forum and I believe this is the correct way to see tire pressure, but I have no clue as I am a Newbie.

Forget about the touch screen for tire pressure lol use a good old gauge make sure you keep 40 psi in the front and 36 in the rear and make sure you check the air once a week the good year tires love to weep air .

Speaking of tires, I was looking at some Nitto's and Antares Majoris M5 285/35R22 106 W Tire

what do you think?

Better grip or wear life? I am with you though, I saw those too, but forgot to mention them. The other 2 I have never heard of.

If the tpms light is on in the instrument cluster but the system tab isn't lit in orange or the tires tab isn't orange it means there is a faulty sensor NOT low pressure. When pressure is low the system/diag/tire tabs will light up orange and allow you to display the pressures and the low one will show in orange (psi algorithm is wrong anyway but it at least tells you which one is low)
You have a bad sensor somewhere.

I have the same issue after the 530 & 535 update. I have done a hard reset yet, but I did just check all of the tires and they are 40 front / 36 back.

the updates have nothing to do with the TPMS system you need to have the sensors pinged to see which one is faulty. The TPMS sensor are also a weak area I've changed tons of them.
Unfortunately if you don't have the Fisker program to reset the sensors after replacing a sensor the light might never go out. In orde to reset the system after a new sensor is installed or after a 8 mile drive not stopping you need the Fisker program and a TPMS tool that can ping the sensors.
The tool that pings the sensor wasn't made just for Fiskers but Fisker paid them to include Fisker with the other manufacturers that the tool is used with.

Why not stick with the Goodyear F1? I thought the Pradas were noisy. If you don't mind the wear, should we stick with the Goodyears?

The Tesla Model X (P90D) uses a very similar 22" tire size (Goodyear F1's) with sound comfort technology (whatever that is), I wonder if the front tires will fit on the Karma?

P90D -> 265/35R22 vs Karma 255/35R22
285/35R22 vs Karma 285/35R22

IMO the Prada's diminish the handling of the vehicle vs the F1's. There have been rumors that Goodyear has been producing new F1's in Karma sizes but I have not seen any recent date codes on the "new" F1's. The newest I have seen are from 2013.
