    If you dont wanna cut wires you can make a small tube out of 4" abs pipe, a cap, and a threaded clean out piece. Then drill a hole and thread a tire valve on one end, lastly, put your tpms sensors inside the pipe and pump it up to 50 psi, then just toss the tube under your seat or attach it under the hood or somewhere on the frame.

    This is easy, but may not be liked by border patrol. Random search and you have something that looks like a pipe bomb? Not gonna make some pro's happy.

    I did the "pipe bomb" in my old Subaru. I had a street and track set of wheel and tire combos that would not fit the sensors. The "pipe bomb" will lose air, but a quick top off with a bike pump and off goes the light. Put some cotton or fiber fill in there so the sensors don't make noise while you're driving.

    I just put a piece of electrical tape over the light.

    Agreed!
    I use two sets of wheels (stock/DD set and my MT off-road set) and I have the TPMS light on every time my off-road set is mounted. The little TPMS light barely registers when I look down though. It really isn't that big or bright.

    If it really bugs you, Put some kind of sticker over the TPMS light so you don't see it. Little piece of electrical tape, scratch n sniff sticker, wadded up chewing gum...

    In the past, I just evenly drilled 4 extra valve stem holes in the spare and installed all 4 sensors in the spare. Benefit was they were out of the way, didn't lose air as fast as the "pipe bomb" method, and you knew when your spare needed a top off.

    Holy shit! This has got to be the most original idea I've ever heard!

    I'm gonna stop right here. Anything else I type is going to get me banned.
