My sensors seem to indicate about 3 psi lower than a gage, I tried a couple.
Weird, my sensors are within 1 psi of both my guages.

Try filling them up with nitrogen. Nitrogen is a more stable gas... I have not had any issues...

Cold weather and tire pressure don't mix. Cold weather means top off the tires every year.
