BFGoodrich tire explodes

by

My friend Roger had an adventure the other afternoon, when a tire on his Honda CRV exploded. Fortunately, he was on city streets, rather than a freeway.

We get a good look at the steel belting, which violently delaminated.

The tire had been his spare forever, and had probably never been used. We see here that the tread is completely new.

A loose piece of tire flailed around in and outside the wheel well before Roger could pull over, scratching and damaging the fender.
