I trust you confirmed the location and reason for the air loss that caused the Blowout. If for example if the air leak was caused by a loose bolt in tire valve you could end up with just another failure.

A TPMS should have provided warning of the air loss that resulted in the Run Low Flex Failure of the tire sidewall i.e. the "Blowout"
