This question needs to be more specifc to produce a reliable answer. The answer will vary depending on they kind of tire, the vehicle, and the use for which the tire is applied. If we're considering a car, light truck, SUV or other passenger vehicle, there is usually a placard on the door, in the glove compartment or the fuel compartment cover which specifies the best tire pressure for the vehicle. This may be as low as 24 psi or as high as 35psi in most cases, but this is not an acceptable range to operate under. The safest range is withing 1-2 pounds of the level on the door sticker, or the owner's manual specs. Never operate for normal conditions using the Maximum pressure which is stamped on the side of the tire. This maximum is the greatest pressure which the tire is designed to resist ... not the recommended operating pressure. If a tire is used with less than the optimum pressure you note that the outside edges of the tread will be wearing faster than the center. This is a clear sign that you need to use more pressure. If the tire is wearing only in the center of the tread faster than the outside edges, then you need to reduce the pressure. The vehicle's weight and the load carried also play a part. The heavier the load the the more pressure required in the tires.

If changing tires to another brand with different pressure ratings can the pressure sensors be adjusted for the different pressure on a 2001 c5 corvette?

The OEM tire pressures are regulated by the vehicle characteristics, not the tire. The same tire may be used on many different vehicles at many different operating pressures. The normal safe operating tire pressures of a vehicle are determined by the vehicle manufacturer and not the tire manufacturer. The only tire pressures that are listed on the tire are the MAXIMUM operating pressure for ANY application and the maxumum BEAD SEATING pressure. The Tire pressure sensors are calibrated to the OEM pressures, probably would not be programable. All the pressure sensing system does is warn of low vehicle tire pressure (probably below the vehicle posted minimum), correct? If the system reads and displays the actual pressure in the tire, then pressure is pressure and will remain the same regardless of the tire brand or size.
