Same here. At least three punctunres in recent years. Always with Michelin PR3 or PR4. Always on the rear.
Last time it was slightly off center, so I had to replace the tire (which was almost worn anyway). So not everytime inside the threads.

As for TPMS it's indeed a great help, but the cost and maintainability is unjustifiable (IMHO), when compared to such low cost (yet effective and robust) solutions:

This incredibly cheap piece of kit have been working reliably on my bikes for more than one year now. I charge the receiver once every two or three months and didn't have to replace the emitters batteries yet.

Totally agree Nik - why are the ones in my Mazda car still fine 8 years old - Triumph ones useless after 3 years and more than double the price than my car !!  :155:

I have the same accessory tyre tyre pressure monitor on mine and can't fault it for £30. It's been on for 18 months and just needs the screen charged every few months which is quick off the USB slot I also have on the screen bar. It's accurate to my 2 digital guages and very reassuring to have. Only recommended for metal valve stems though as rubber stems can bend with the sensors on them.
