i guess in theory the warm weather could have raised the psi...but even if its rated at 85 you can go up behond that. so i dont think it was the weather. where is the damage on the rim? around the weld?
deffinately sucks. how old is the bike and esseintially the rim? you might be able to go through some sort of warranty issue if its not too old depending on brand
if the bike and rim are arent damaged, from a fall since thast what would have happend if you had a blow out moving, im sure you can 'argue' you didnt 'damage' the bike 'using' it.
even if the tyre was not seated right, the tube would have just poked out and blown up the tube and or tyre...which ive done my share of times.
put up a picture of the damage, maybe someone can judge what caused it better
good to hear you didnt have a blow out while riding :\
