Ccon, I guess the sensor is not picking up differences based on having a nail, it probably detects only the pressure difference, hence the diameter diff also. Good luck.

Ccon, did you check the tire pressure? When you patched the tire, it is possible they did not inflate it to the same pressure. X3s are very, very, very sensitive to tire wear and pressure.

Before doing anything, check your tires. There is a chance you might have something (nail, screw, etc) in one of tires. It happened to me couple of times and symptoms were the same.

This morning the lights went off. I did find the gear and will probably replace it tomorrow, just in case. It does not look complicated, will probably take 1-1.5hrs.
