... and then it exploded

This tire made it about 100 miles. Couldn't return as 30 days had passed. I brought it to a local bike shop that dealt in continental and was mystified and tried to deal with continental rep to get replacement (ultimately failed with no reason given). Side wall blew out. No brake wear near tire. No rim damage. No over pressurization (was on its original air from replacement). $60 mistake. Now 400 miles on my second set of Armadillos (first wore through the first layer of rubber without any flats)
