Best Answer

There are several things that can cause a tire to blow.

-you can run over a piece of road debris or a sharp rock that'll cut the tire bad enough to blow

-sheer mileage can cause the tire to wear through to the casing, at which point it'll have lost a lot of strength and may blow at any moment.

- poor wheel alignment can cause the tire to wear through to the casing, at which point it'll have lost a lot of strength and may blow at any moment

- low pressure can cause the tire to heat up, which makes the rubber softer and the tire weaker which can cause it to blow

- heavy load can cause the tire to heat up, which makes the rubber softer and the tire weaker which can cause it to blow

overinflation can cause it to blow just like when a balloon pops.
