It's my understanding the TPMI are just a tool to help the driver if the tires are under or over inflated. These two conditions are helpful to remedy to reduce possible tire blowouts.
The system in all likelihood won't foretell if there is/are defects from the manufacturing plant but it can provide feedback to help reduce issues.
Are they accurate? I can't say yes or no but at some point one is going to be trusting something to measure the air pressure.

Don't know about add on TPMS but the ones on my GMC 2500's have never been too accurate -- usually under read up to 10 psi. I use a gauge religiously on the trailer (and I'm not even a religious person).

I check mine with a digital gauge and just use the TST TPST as a monitor. With that being said, the TST have been within 1 or 2 psi of the gauge.

Mine too and my Chevy 3500 did not come with TPMS. My TST work really good, you have to rely on something otherwise you won't get very far

As I recall ToSlow, you are getting a Cedar Creek? I believe you have a option to upgrade your stock tires to Maxxis (a fine brand) and perhaps Goodyear (which are my preferred brand)

Regardless, to answer the OP question - you really want to stay with a ST tire because of the sidewall strength. Search the forums, the ST vs LT debate has been long and at times painful

I am going to stick with the Goodyear LT tires but it's a free country buy what you like and feel safe with
