Well, thanks masi61. It appears you're the only one not afraid of a potential lawsuit when it blows out on me again at 40 mph!
All kidding aside, those were the same thoughts I had. The wire bead has definitely been warped though, but as you point out, it doesn't appear damaged. My only reservation is that I swear this tire was properly seated - I'm very thorough about mounting tires.
For the record, this is a Panaracer Pasela TG 700 x 28. I'm pretty sure they don't come in a straight-wall variety. I replaced them with the same tire in 25mm width and have had no problems.
