If the tire were to be used on the rear of the car, the worst that would happen is the ABS light would come on (and possibly the low tire indicator, if so equipped). If it were on the front end (since the Passat is a front wheel drive vehicle), you run the risk of damaging the transaxle (the differential in the transaxle to be specific). When running tires ...

One. Dont jump on it. You risk stripping the lug and stud then you can't remove the tire and Have to replace the stud. Two. Never supposed to use grease, silicon, or wd40 on tire lugs or studs. The stud remains lubricated and the lug can work itself loose when driving after having the tire changed. You just need to not overtighten them in the first place. ...

I also suggest getting a second gauge, but would caution that the pop-out stick type pictured above are notoriously inaccurate and would suggest a mechanical dial gauge as the best type to buy. With ...

Reality check #1: A tire at 70 psi would be bulging at the seams - you would be scared of the tire's appearance. Reality check #2: The sag on a tire at 20 psi is easy to notice. I believe what's happening here is that the B&D inflator is low on charge and/or in the wrong setting, causing erroneous readouts for tire pressure. This isn't far-fetched ...

It's not a good idea to measure the pressure when they are cold because because they will change pressure (potentially a lot) when they warm up, especially if you live in a cold part of the world. And the warm pressure is what matters, because that's what they will be while you're actually driving. Measure the pressure after driving normally. For example ...
