      You should only need a small hole in the bung, not comepletely removed, I wouldn't dare do that in a wet country such as UK - or maybe install a duckbill valve or make something out of SUGRU.

      To be fair to the tyre, it was probably just a sudden deflation caused by a puncture and at those speeds, the tyre will be like this after 10-15 seconds.

      The price of fuel in the UK is 75% tax so that plays a large part.
