Exactly. I was a tire dealer for many years,,,,, I got so tired of 'it just blew out for no reason, it's a junk tire' when in reality it was a blowout brought on by the disintegration of the tire when it was run underinflated. Usually by a puncture. You have to remember - tires are 'glued' together in a mold - under heat and pressure. Heat them up too much and they disassemble themselves.

Set mine to the required 50 PSI and monitor at the start and end of each trip. Also have a TPMS.. I do not worry about hot and cold temps. I think you all are putting too much thought into this!

Maybe, maybe not. I have a friend that tows his Scarab to the Keys often. He was complaining about how his front tires on the trailer were blowing out so frequently. I had him bring the rig to me and we weighed the front and rear axles to see what we had; turns out what was happening was that when he loaded his Yukon the ass end sank so low he was overloading the front axle since the axles weren't bogeyed and he was overloading the front axle. Changed the ball height and the problem went away. Lesson learned. Watch your front and rear axle weights on your towed unit for possible overloading.

Yes I can see that.. He was overloaded. But I think the original question was about pressure changes in the tires when the temp outside changes.. To me this is way to much into it.. We are not a space shuttle here! LOL
