So you don't really have anyway of figuring out what the failure was because of the lack of evidence left over . I have had front blow and then go flat so with a bit of warning , kind of . But they never cause the damage you described other then the truck getting a bit squirreley for a bit . Have you checked the tire manufacture to see if maybe there were a bad batch come off the line ?
It was a 10-ply load range 'E' truck tire, inflated to 80psi, that blew.
