The faliure you are describing is probably due to a "road hazzard" or possibly a leaky
valve stem causeing the air pressure to drop. This causes the siewalls to over-flex
when revolving, which causes internal friction (heat), and eventually leads to a
"blowout". Of course, it's very hard to say for sure with out looking at the tire.
If you still have the tire, look and see if any nails, screws, plastic, bone, or glass
might be found. I would say you'll probably find the culprit there.
