If you have a problem with a tire and you're driving: you know it immediately, and can get stopped before any further damage occurs.
If you're not in the vehicle, and something goes wrong:

In many cases a problem can be detected earlier by the tire getting abnormally hot before something catastrophic occurs.

Only 3 reasons a tire gets abnormally hot:

1 - It's underinflated - The TPMS will see that.
2 - It's overloaded - Yikes! Shouldn't be the case for a toad.
3 - It's scraping sideways - Did you unlock the toad's steering wheel? Or maybe there's a bigger problem?
