I honestly think you are more likely to encounter a failures like this:



i.e. - nipples pulling through spoke beds, clincher flange separating from the rim, etc, rather than full-on explosive, catasrophic failure. Think of how fiberglass fails: resin breaks apart and delaminates but the fibers (or mat) still loosely hold things together and the item generally holds its shape, just in weakened form.
