Everyone's situation is different but, if you're running run-flats, TPMS makes a lot of sense. It's a good safety net.

So, if I drive my SC430 to California, I can map/navigate, but not look up where the nearest Sonic drive-thru is?

He had a blown tire...that somehow activated his right turn signal.
