Tire Pressure Monitor saved me from driving on a flat! Although Now I have to give Discount Tire $156 Bucks for a new tire & that price is from a buddy of mine. Full Pop is $186 out the door! I love Michelin But Now I hate them too for the price!

Be aware of where you put the "new" tire. I recommend mounting on the rear if you are not going to buy 2 new tires to form a set. Mismatch of tread life on the front could cause a slight uneven feel for you since the truck is basically front wheel drive.
Yep, Michelins are stinky on price.
Here is how I guaranteed that I will never have a flat. I went into Discount Tire (i had 1500 miles on the tire at that point) and purchased the tire replacement warranty package. I think it cost about $150 which includes lifetime balance, lifetime rotate, flat repair and tire replacement if they can not repair. If you consider that each time you wanted to rotate it could cost you over $20, it definitely pays for itself, especially if you get tire damage.
Would you pay $40 a tire for this package? I eagerly handed over the cash. $40 for my next Michelin plus the rotations that I have them do with every oil change because I have the package. Worth every penny to me.
Consider it insurance on your tires instead of medical or life insurance for yourself.
