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.

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.
