^^Go for it Norm, I want to hear about it.

Just want to add that if you are unlucky enough to have a puncture or failure that goes down rapidly, TPMS is not gonna warn you any faster than the steering wheel or the butt gauge. TPMS is primarily for warning idiots who don't pay attention to their tire pressures that a tire is low and therefore placing them and others in danger. Things like losing a tire bead and having instant deflation can happen from low pressure, and this would primarily happen while going around a turn, and I guarantee you that going around a curve on the highway at 70mph is not a place where you want to lose a tire bead.
