I try to explain to people everyday that tires do not just spontaneously blow up. In order for the tire to lose air something had to enter the tire- just like a balloon. The bubbles you saw were probably the result of a sidewall separation caused by running the tires at high speed on low air pressure. When the air inside the tires gets hot it heats up the tire, and with all the friction of running on low air that added to the heat too and BOOM! If your tires are not at 35psi (and not checked once a month) then they are too low. If you are hauling a trailer or loading the truck anywhere near the maximum load you need to bump the air pressure up to the max inflation pressure on the side of the tire. Trust me, tires do not just blow up.
