F_ckin' tire blew out on me last night.

I was driving home last night, early round 5am, and my car starts to rumble, and my steering tilts to one side.. first thing that hits my mind: "F_ck, tire blew"

So, I get out of the car, and immediately, I smell burning rubber, this dun sound like a normal blow out.

So I touch the tire, and its burning hot. I eventually pull it out.. and this is how it looks...

Does this look normal to you??? You guys think I should email Kumho? They're Kumho 712's, I will never buy these tires again. (although I might buy 1 to replace the blown one, but after that, never again)

where did you go anyways, cos i just won some gas money at the casino while chilling and watching a movie in my truck, passed by you at about 130km/h on the far left lane, otherwise i woulda pulled over, well, you got home pretty quick tho, cos i just got in 30mins ago... damn 401... i took local and drove all the way back from Sausage to North York, nice road alongside the lake tho
