Usually loss of tyre pressure, leading to rapid over heating of the tyre followed by BLOW OUT!

This is why I ordered tyre pressure monitor. It should give you enough warning of the deflation that you can pull over before the tyre overheats and blows.

Saw this on another post and the tyre monitor did not show the rapid deflation as it is just designed to show a slow pressure drop.

If it's the same post I'm thinking of the author got the warning but did not pull over immediately and the tyre then blew shortly after.
