  1. Tyre busts can be dangerous especially with high profile vehicles like Toyota land cruiser, we thank God no one lost a life now investigations need to be done why that tyre bust.
    Things like this can be a lesson to learn from was it a defective tyre or was it excessive speed for the car or just reckless driving people need to ask such questions.
