Why not use an infared sensor above each tire to capture the surface temperature of the tire - or build in a SAW sensor to the tires as they dont need batteries and you should be able to read from a close proximity

Prevention vs protection

"...high loads these vehicles are exposed to can lead to temperatures well above 150° -- hot enough to liquefy the internal structures of the rubber..."

Sensing the tire pressure would help in regulating the load within limits so that the above situation does not occur, this is a preventive measure. But this would only be half the job done if there is no protection in place to prevent/control hazards even if such situations occur.
