Just after installing my winter tire package, the tire monitor alarmed came on and I cleared it by depressing the monitor button (figured new rims, size etc..)

Every once in a while though, the alarm comes on again. I go through the same reset procedures and it clears.

The tires aren't slipping.

Anyone know what else it could be???

Are they different wheels altogether? M3's have runflats right? There are sensors mounted inside the rim to monitor tire pressure.

They're Dunlop Winter Sports M3 235/45HR17 (all around). Rims are called FAST Strasse 17X8J alloys with the built in offset (38mm) so no spacer required. Depressing the TMP for a number of seconds should reset it but the alarm occassionally blips back. *mumble*
