No idea, but with Rettroband the "evidence" is largely preserved after an event like this. Normally the tire is so shredded it is not clear what happened.Good find, good story. That's what I like seeing. Interesting scenario though. Is that a cut at the outer edge of the tire above the gaping hole?
That is why they won’t put the bands on tires that are older than three years. Their cost to replace damaged older tires began to erode their margin.One thing that concerns me in watching the removal of the RettroBands from the New Aire (video above) is the amount of torsion placed on the tire (stretching it) to get it out. Imagine that done on install causing tears, fractures, etc.?
