That's what you get for street racing and putting other people's lives at risk.

I learned something new, thanks! Why the difference? Is it due to the colder weather that Canada sees?

You'd better ask before you take it in. Once the tire is off of the rim, you're committed. Most shops won't remount a damaged tire because of liability concerns.

In my experience, the sensor should trigger at a higher pressure than that. Is it possible that you didn't reset the TPMS after the last time you inflated the tires?

Yeah, that doesn't sound like the wheel sensor anymore. But I haven't a clue what it might be.

Good luck, and let us know what the final diagnosis is!
