Panaracer Minits Tough with long tear
Tire blew off and ran flat on bare rim. The material looks like it was torn, which suggests that sideways force when running flat on the bare rim caused the material to fail at the tread/sidewall boundary, where the cords are weakest, like pulling on opposite sides of a creased paper. This tire was about 1 year old with 2700 miles on it.
