That's what I started thinking but with all the strange truck tires, well, strange tires in general, I can't tell anymore and I am certainly no expert on that stuff anyway.

it could be an antique truck tire...i guess, but doubt with the construction of the tire.

Given the knobs left on it, the width, the apparent circumference, and the construction, my guess is that it's an off-road tyre for a motorbike.

you may have been thrown off by the floor jack in the pic, it's much larger than your standard garage model that you get at sears...

You are so full of shit, Skidmore.

Jeez, PJ, what causes such a massive failure like that? I hope the Kia person wasn't hurt.

had another blowout today, same axle - opposite side...
these tires are re-caps so when you factor high heat and high speed they are prone to blowout thumbs up
those strips of rubber you see on the side of the highway are the tread portion...on the cb they are called 'gators'

Good name for 'em 'cause from a distance if they're layin' flat they look like gators. And sometimes they bite.

I had heard that a lot of them are re-caps but I thought I'd ask someone who knows.

My house is about a mile from Interstate 75 and while the traffic noise is dampened by a dense forest in between, a few times over the years (I predate that stretch of road as a matter of fact) I've heard the blast of an exploding truck tire. And then there was the time one of the guys at work accidently stabbed a truck tire with the forklift about 30 meters from where I was standing. Loud.

You should hear a B-52 tire blow out.

Bet that happens pretty often.
I grew up watching B-52s fly over our house with their landing gear down at somewhere between 500 and 1000 feet on approach to Wright Patterson AFB. You couldn't hear a damn thing and they played hell with TV reception (on all three channels) when they were going over.

When I was in the Navy at Subic Bay, PI there were B-52s landing on the airstrip frequently and I swear to God every damn one of them blew a fucking tire. The only thing I ever heard that was possibly louder was an F-8 hitting the single-stage afterburner.
