Like many tire threads, I am going to add a little about a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). After an incident with my daughter and son-in-law's trailer during a spring trip, I am a believer that most "blow outs" with trailer tires are actually the tires going flat. Because the trailer is isolated from our tow vehicles, we cannot feel a low tire. A low or flat tire can go for miles before it starts to come apart.......then we notice that puppy after it starts throwing chunks all over the place. Since the tire now looks like crap, we presume it blew out, when actually it went flat and disintegrated.

That's my story and I am sticking to it.
