I would have to say that TPMS is more of a federally mandated cya device then an actually useful tool for owners. As you have just proven, it is no substitute for checking on your own at least monthly. TPMS is just a response to the Firestone/Explorer fiasco of a few years back.

OASN, I had a blowout at 70mph in my 2012 Subaru due to hitting road debris. TPMS never told me that the tire went down, of course I was only driving on it for less then a minute after the incident. It really is only useful to tell you of a slow leak that could affect handling if left uncorrected.
