There are more than a dozen possible reasons why your Bridgestone tire could have failed. Sure, a defective tire is one. But it could have been caused by improper inflation. incorrect tire or wheel size, use of the tire beyond it's wear indicator, damaged or failing strut or shock, etc.

The LAST Uniroyal that I had required 8 oz of weight in one spot to balance it. The LAST two Cooper tires that I had were a set. One developed a bump in the tread and wore through the steel belts there. I called the local dealer. He said that he had never heard of that before. The other tire did the same thing within 400 miles. I did have the tread come off of a front tire like that on an S10. I don't know/care what brand tire it was, it was old and worn out anyhow. I was about 7 miles from home when it started slapping the wheel liner. I was hoping to make it home without changing the tire. I got about 2 miles from home when it blew out. I normally run Goodyear.

Nope, not in 31 years of mostly above-average mileage driving. A few punctures from nails and such in the road, but never any blow-outs or structural disintegration like you have. I hope you can send it back to them for analysis.

Water in air compressor tanks will cause over-inflation. The hotter the tires get the more inflation pressure.

Happens all the time, call your tire dealer if it's manufacturer defect ,they do repairs and replace tire ...If it's road hazard, the warranty they offered you when you bought them will replace tire ....then turn it in to your insurance for the vehicle damage ...call your agent let him know what's up..either way.

Joser has my vote, you can have the bridgestone dealer look into the cause and warranty of your tire but insurance is where you get help. either you had road hazard, or your insurance covers you, if you do not have that level of coverage, then the tire has to hold air, punctures can stop that, so you need to find if there was a foreign object or hazard, or whether there was some failure of the tire casing. This is a must see for the authority who can make that determination.

I just had a Bridgestone radial with about 20,000 miles on it come apart. The entire tread separated from the core. The car skidded into a retaining wall and had over $7,000 of damage. The tires had been rotated on a regular basis and serviced with nitrogen. There was no excess wear, just a catastrophic failure. Beware these tires! It was a miracle that no one was injured.
