I was driving along today and seemed as if I had a flat I pull over, get the tyre off and WTF..do I see... see pics below..



why did this happen, what causes this, and the sad thing is the other 3 tyres have cracks on the back side also ready to blow just like this one did, nothing is touching or scraping so HELP!!!!!!!!!I have 19's Nitto 555's, I have had them for 3 years the tread is GREAT.

:banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

Only thing I can guess is by living over here in the middle east maybe it was the 130 plus heat from the summer now that its cool I am reaping the punishment of the summer heat, any thoughts...

Low tire pressures, cheap tires, and high ambient temperatures make for dramatic tire failures.
