Ive seen that happen to tires from riding the pipe as well. Not saying you did that but rev'in the motor while on a pipe can do a number on the pins.

Lol yea ive done that more than once because some marshalls are to slow that could cause the lugs to come off espially on the side of them.

+1 When your stuck on a pipe and you pin the throttle your tire thats not on the ground balloons and skids on the pipe and rips off lugz.

too soft of a tire for the rough terrain. You might notice on the pins that are left, the wear is stemming from the bottom and not the top. Rocky conditions usually does this to tires. The pins completely fold over and get grated by the sharp rocks, resulting in the pins being ripped off. Try harder compounds (mediums) and/or larger lug (i-beams)
