Really? Tires are Bluetooth? I don't think mine are, but now I want to figure out how that works. 1600Chips/sec is 600 microseconds per chip. They spin at up to, say, radial rates that are a 100 revs/sec and thus take maybe 10 msec. to travel 30 cm. How much warble in a chip frequency is there?

Ok, maybe they only need to work when the car is stopped.

I would design a tire pressure system that sends, maybe, 10 bits per second, at most. Or calibrate the sensor to produce 1 bit, and use the car metal frame to carry the signal to the computer as a single bit. A very slowly varying sensor can be sensed without needing a battery, by using some passive, tuned circuit.

Bluetooth is way overkill, but cheap. I doubt it works well in the application, though.

That would break your tire pressure sensors (each car is rolling around 
broadcasting 4 unique bluetooth IDs, not hard to track)
