That sucks.. if that is second time its happened with those tires i wouldnt get them either. also if second time has happened on inside tire wall check your car and make sure somthing isnt making contact with the tire some how.

Damn. I was always told keep the PSI for tires high in winter, medium range in hot weather. But that looks more like a nasty pothole was the culprit...

The damage to the sidewalls is from the tire running low on air and generating excessive heat. It's called a "run flat" in the tire industry. Theres bound to be a puncture somewhere else on the tire that caused it to go flat. By the time you get pulled over onto the side of the road a low profile is pretty much toast. Toyo is a good brand of tire and this can happen to any brand regardless of size.
