Hey all! In my 26 years of driving, I’ve never had a blow out - but I have seen them, I’ve had a few flats, but I’ve never seen anything like this… any thoughts?

Did you drive over something that protruded that far into the wheel via the tire? How bad is the tire?
I was on the highway going 75, did not hit or run over anything. It appears that it happened from the inside. The hole in the tire is protruding. Ever seen Aliens…

I suspect a rock (or some other object) got trapped between the inside of the rim and the brake caliper. As the wheel was spinning, the rim was punctured. Probably a better outcome than if the caliper had been damaged. Either way, I wouldnt drive that as is.......
