Having done a lot of tire mounting and dismounting on my own machines, I can't imagine what they did "right" that would cause a sidewall rupture to happen when it didn't rupture on the car. The only two things that I can see causing that are they either didn't deflate the tire before unseating the bead with the pneumatic bead breaker and there was a LOT of pressure in the tire, or they put the lip of the bead breaker scoop in the middle of the sidewall instead of right up against the bead. I haven't done anywhere near the number of tires that a tire shop does, but certainly north of 100 on various sizes from tiny to huge. And that cut has a suspiciously slightly curved shape to it that would match up very nicely with the curved edge of the dish on a pneumatic bead breaker.

Was a matter of a few seconds. Definitely got my attention and VERY glad it was a rear tire.
