 While driving approximately 70 mph on interstate highway tire pressure on all 4 tires had been checked evening before, at 34-35 psi all tires.*ak tire just came apart (no blowout, no flat) -- appears as if entire sidewall separated from internal belts (tread was still intact, inside sidewall gone) apparently pieces started flying off about a mile before this, but was unable to identify the noise, until the tire came apart and lost all pressure. wagoneer is pretty stable, so led only to a (very) abrupt pullover onto shoulder of highway. (also helped that it was a rear tire) wanted to report it -- have two more tires of same type on vehicle, one of which appears to have serious cracks in sidewall.
