Martin, thats one faaaaaarked tyre, a tyre going at 130km/h would be scary.
I had a similar situation where a nail went into the tyre at around 120km/h but fortunately it went flat on an exit ramp at a set of lights the tyre then deflated a bloke behind me ran up and said me tyre was flat, lucky it was repairable.
Always though tyre blowouts were a thing of the pass, guess there not.
