Default tire blew up?

So I have these stick tires on. And yesterday while on a gravel road my left front tire just blew up. Now I have the tire protection package.
But I'm not sure if they are gonna replace it if I tell them that I was on a gravel road?
I am in the field and posting from my phone. Here's a picture I hope it works

WOW! I have never had great luck with Good Year tires. My new coming in tomorrow has them. Sorry for your misfortune. Gravel road shouldn't be an issue, but it seems that there is always fine print that doesn't go in our favor. Good luck.

WOW
that looks like it ripped along one of the steel belts
they will check it out closely, but it sure looks like a road hazard cut it
road type should not matter

check your brake fluid level for the next few days
it may be a bad seal or O ring

Were they the Wrangler SRA's? They are prone to puncturing easily but I've never seen a catastrophic blowout like that! Guess I might need to skip a few more meals so I can hurry up with the BFG All Terrains...

Damn! Now that's a blow out. Can't see how any road surface would do that to a new tire.

Yeah they are the wranglers. And they are garbage. I gotta hurry up and get some new all terrain s.
If you think that's bad check this out. This failure happened few years back on my ford ranger. Tire intact rim split in half while I was driving
