tyre blowout

hello everyone,
driving along and bang, back tyre on the passenger side, stop the car, have a look the rim is sitting on the ground. i was near a petrol station so just drove to it, pumped the tyre up, hoping would reach the tyre place but was closed.
its been two days now and the tyre is still pumped.
what happen there?

Its likely you have a weak/damaged sidewall, when the tyre heated up (as they do) it popped its rim...

Best to replace it ASAP...

when you do check the DOT number on the sidewall, make sure you get 2 new tyres (same pattern), and put them on the rear...
