Today was horrible :(

I went to the local trail this morning rode it once then took a little break, then rode it again. The second time i rode it my about six inches of my rear tire seperated from the wire bead and the tube hung out and got a flat . The worst part was i was 4 miles into an 8 mile loop so i had to hike back to the car 4 miles away. I just sent an email to wtb because i just got these tires a week ago. I am hoping they will send me a new tire because i really would hate to have to buy a new one does anyone have any experience with returning products to wtb?

thanks for reading about my bad day

Sounds like a rim out of round that would allow a brake pad to contact the tire and and wear throught the tire. I'd do a quick check to make sure this isn't the case.
