The Tire Blew With Very Little Warning. The Entire Sidewall Separated From The Rest Of The Tire. I Had Originally Thought It Might Have Been Due To A Road Hazard That I Had Not Seen. Since The Recent Reports I Do Not Think So. It Looked Exactly Like Some Of The Pictures I Saw On The News. In Over 40 Years Of Driving I Have Never Seen A Sidewall Seperate Like That. I Did Not Pay That Much Attention To The Tread. The Tire Had 20k+ Miles On It But Was Not In Bad Shape. *ak( Dot Number: Tire Size: 235×15 )
