Have a 2012 GS bought new which now has 91k miles. The TPMS has always read higher than 2 of my handheld tire pressure gauges. Lately it has been reading 4-5 psi higher than the handhelds. Wonder if my 7 year-old TPMS sensors are starting to die; I would think they would read low if dying.

Are the handhelds either digital or if not a decent quality gauge? Not a pencil gauge?
Have you tried a reset of the sensors like you would do when rotating tires?
