I've done some research on this but wanted to get some opinions. I should probably just buy a replacement tpms. I have an 11 Touring and last year I bought some 11 Touring rims with tpms with slightly used Blizzak tires ( yes, the stock Michelin worked great in two feet of powdered snow- but I wanted some snow tires for the ice) that I recently put on. One sensor will occasionally read 10 pounds lower than the other three tires ( whether it's hot or cold outside and I've driven the vehicle at highways speeds or lower for some time) while the actual tire pressure is exactly the same as the other tires and then it will go back to reading normally at some point. Temp.s in our area went back to winter weather and I had used a cold pressure of 35 pounds for the Blizzacks ( I go with the recommended 32 for the stock Michelins). So I pick up my daughter after work tonight and the one sensor again reads 10 lbs less than actual temperature which indicates 27 lbs and sets off the visible and audio warning. Over 20 miles later, it reads normal and the warning disappears. I'm just worried if this one sensor ( and I find it strange that one, the tire isn't losing air, and two, it's always an indicated 10 lb difference when it's "malfunctioning") will limit my Pilot in adverse snow conditions. Any ideas on this occasional 10 lb lower occasional reading on my properly inflated tire? Thanks in advance.
