    I had a tyre blow out at 50mph the other night, I'd just joined the M8 motorway at the one junction that joins on the wrong side - i.e. the fast lane, when I heard an almighty bang. I managed to keep control and get the car over to the hard shoulder. I shudder to think what might have happened had I been doing 70-80mph. fortunately traction control kicked in as well.

    here's whats left of the tyre (which was a Michelin Premacy)...
