We had a blowout of a tigerpaw tire at approx. 70 mph in a 1998 CHevy Astro van. Caused some injuries. Upon inspection of the tire, the sidewall joint had a catastrophic failure. No nails or other material were found that may have cause the tire to blow out. It seems like it just failed. AMbient temperatures were 111 deg F. Anyone with similar experience or comment on the design or weakness of Uniroyal Tigerpaws, pelase comment.
