This is purely conjecture on my part but if any deviation I might suspect a sudden drop almost simultaneously as air rushes out. Again, just a guess but perhaps some tire mfg. web sites might have some credible insight.

By the way, I was told that auto manufacturers are being required to install some type of monitoring systems as of a certain date, Ibut both my vehicles, ('08 &'09 models) include tire pressure on the dashboard information display. Has anyone heard this?

If the tire is going to blow-out due to high temperature there would certainly be an increase in the temperature. My PressurePro system also warns for hight temperature. Whether the warning would be soon enough to prevent a blow-out would be the question. The worst cast I can think of is one dually goes flat, or low PSI, the other dually on the same side is now taking most of the load, and the low PSI tire is building up temperature. If you continue to drive one of the, or both, will eventually blow, depending on several other factors. The Toad is also one of the things that caused me to purchase the system. As a matter of fact I had protection on the Toad for a year before I bought the additional sensors.

I'm thinking the worst situation for most of us is a front tire (steer) blow out. With that in mind is there any thing out there that would help prevent serious accidents through loss of control? I know what they say, step on it and give her more power, but how many would would really do that in a panic situation?

When I bought my DP I was talked into a belt that goes around the inside of the front tire wheel that is supposed to prevent the tire from coming off the rim thus giving you the ability to control the MH in the event of tire failure. It was called TYRON. I thought it was great, until I needed to replace the front tires, they weren't there. Got my money back. But I've always wondered if they would really work. Any thoughts/experience with this TYRON System or something like it??
