I ran across an interesting article on agriculture.com discussing proper care for tires, with a fair bit of information about how technology is starting to be a factor with tires.  Several perspectives here, one of tire pressure monitoring and control, another from GPS control and the patterns that the tractors are driven.  A third angle on this is using the precision ag data to calculate the cost of improperly inflated tires.

I found it to be a good read and thought I would share.  Feel free to share your thoughts about it as comments.
