Continental Tires 235x65x17 on Volvo XC60 with 22,000 kph mileage only, burst at 80-100 kph on highway driving.
The Continental tire described above was installed at the rear left.I was traveling at speed of 80-100kph when it burst.
I slow down and look at the "information" on the dashboard for information of the trouble, but no information. So I continued to drive on for less than a kilometer but at lower speed 40-50 until i saw my inside Fender lining fall out on the road.
After parking the car at a safe distance along the highway, i got off and inspected the problem and found the tire burst and torn into 3 pieces, as shown in the attached photos.The condition of the burst tire could have caused more damage to properties and to lives, had it been installed at the front.
