@Multani: Oh Ya! Try going over a deep pot hole, a sharp rock or metal part or the edge of the foot path first breaking & Bending the Steel Wire Mesh Belts inside then go over the same sharp object again with over-inflated tyre or extra heavy load that could easily transfer over that corner on sharp turn. Note: Next time you see a bubble or bump on a tyre, I bet the steel wire mesh or belt "that you call it" is broken already and now only the rubber is holding the pressure and can burst over a bump any time. Watch specially on hill climbing too.
