What causes a tire to do this?

I was wondering if any of you have experienced anything like this? The tires are goodyear at/s with about 10k miles on them. They are a matching set with a build date of mid 2011 on all 4. I had no noticeable problems when I left work, then on the way home with the cruise set at 65mph, I blew the right rear. I know its a little hard to tell from the pic, but there are two different sections of the sidewall completely gone. I figured they most be dry rotted on the inside but the tire shop that replaced it said it looked fine with respect to dry rot and couldnt figure out why this happened? I had the one that blew replaced with a new goodyear at/s with build date of late 2014. Now I'm just curious about the other three because I certainly dont want one of the fronts to do this. The tires are on a crew cab 2006 f-150 and are 265 70 17. They are also religiously monitored and kept between 30-35 psi.

I also should probably mention the truck had nothing in the bed and I wasnt pulling a trailer. It was just me in the truck

Were you running on low pressure? it looks like the sidewall delaminated and that usually comes from being overheated.
Another possibility is that you damaged the sidewall on the trail and the highway flexing just made it go.

30-35psi sounds low for that truck. What does the door sticker recommend for psi?

My old ranger took 35 psi. My F250 is 60/70 psi. I'd guess yours requires somewhere in between.

The door sticker reads 35psi cold. I could always raise it to 40, but I wouldnt have thought that even if it was 30psi that would have caused such a dramatic failure.

makes me wonder if the tire had ever been driven at low pressure. Even if they visually look fine, there can be hidden damage within the sidewall that can manifest itself as a failure such as this later on down the road.

I'd say it was just a defective tire.

Been there, done that. Too many fat chicks in truck at once.

Next time make the chubby redhead sit in the front, put the fat brunette in the back. Works every time. Weight differentiation, you know??

Did you make sure you put the "winter air" in the tire before it got cold?

I would say it was probably the Ford emblem. They are hard on tires.
Yea I work for Firestone.

Tires are cured with heat, and naturally heat will also degrade them. If I were to wager what happened, my money will go towards a puncture. Pick up a nail, centrifugal force throws it out and you have a steady leaker. And as the air escapes, heat builds up. When the temperature becomes critical, the tire gives out.

The simple term is "run flat".

That tire was driven flat for quite a while.
