As you drive down any of the UAE highways you will see endless trails of rubber from blown-out tyres. In the UK you may see the odd one every now and again, but here they are honestly everywhere. Heat, of course, is a contributory factor, but basic maintainence is the main issue I believe. People just keep driving on worn tyres and do not check them regularly enough.
Today our friend had borrowed a 4x4 from his neighbour to move some furniture. Below are the pictures of his tyres as a case in point. All 4 were exactly the same. Death trap.
