Check the dour jamb label for proper tire pressure settings. Also, check the sidewall of the tires. It's my opinion that the door card settings are usually listing pressure for optimal comfort and not necessarily best for tire wear and mileage. I run my 2012 Beetle tires at 40psi...a bit lower in winter.

you may have to go to Auto Zone and get them to check the sensor may only need resetting if you've done the tire pressure properly
