Theres somthing wrong with those folks. They don't even think sidewall checking is bad.

Yes I have seen TPM sensors rendered useless (not repairable either) because of the use of tire sealant. Good chance the introduction of a liquid inside the tire will allow the dust etc that is inside all tirees to do the same.
Sensor has hole in it for pressure monitoring. Most in the range of 1mm or 1/32".
