I am surprised re-calibration would not take care to different tread wear on the axle.
Perhaps, once the tyres warm up, there is a significant enough difference with uneven treads to trigger the warning, even after cold calibration.

I am now some miles and weeks and some motorway driving away from my last false alarm. I think it's clear from Mike and Colin have put up that the system is very sensitive. That may be a good, if somewhat annoying, thing because it will highlight small drops in pressure from, say, a slow puncture. My understanding is the systems that use a sensor on each wheel - a genuine TPMS as opposed to Honda's Deflation Warning System - typically don't trigger until a tyre has lost 20% of its pressure.
