Or do they just blow without provocation?
I am a believer that most tires that "blow out" are have actually gone flat 1st. You can't feel that in the drivers seat, then after a couple of miles that tire shreds. My DD and SIL had that happen on a trip last spring, when the campers in our group driving behind the trailer noticed the trailer start to tilt. After a couple of miles and finally getting a change to pull up beside the camper, that tire started giving up pieces, and we were notified of the problem by 2 way radio.
I use a tire pressure monitoring system to hopefully prevent that situation.
