I'd bet statistics would for non-fatal accidents. And I wouldn't be surprised if there wasn't a significant difference in fatal. At least if you could figure out a fair way to count them. .

^Absolutely not so. What in the world? The tire casing fully contains the tube and limits its size, despite high internal pressure. What do you do for a living?
