On highway with 65 mph, front tire (Bridgestone potenza RE92 P205/55R) blewout with no reason. There was a quarter sized hole on the sidewall. This caused damage to rim as well. Bridgestone authorized dealer did not accept this as a defective tire even though tires should be covered under manufacturer's warranty. I had to buy a new tire and rim and paid tow.
