    You didn't by chance at any time put fixaflat in that tire did you ?
    Looks like it rusted from the inside out and I seen a couple curb dings also.

    No i never put tire slime in it but i cant say the same for the guy that owned it before me. But i don't think he would have because it has a tube in it. I'm thinking it just was rusted through at the weld point.
