Tire pressures and overloading

Pages and pages have been archived about tire pressures, load-inflation charts, overloading, under-inflation, etc.; which, according to the RMA=Rubber Manufacturers Association, causes over 90% of all tire failures.
Without attempting to rehash years of discussions, now there appears to be solutions on the horizon. This is new technology that monitors tire wear, monitors tire overloading, as well as monitoring tire pressure. Read more here: Tire software tells you when tread has worn out - MSN Autos

Another way to protect the uninformed from tire failures. IMO, people sacrifice safety for a smooth ride by running the absolute minimum tire pressures for their loading as reflected in all tire load/inflation charts. This is addressed in the article.

Personally, I just run the tires at, or near max inflation.
That way I always know what to inflate them to and I don't have to look at some internet chart, I can see it right there on the tire.
Life's too short to fret about letting 5 psi out of a tire to gain a ride quality that isn't even noticeable.
