After taxiing approximately 3 mi from FBO to runway 17L for takeoff (approximately 30 min at gross weight) received takeoff clearance. No flap takeoff was initiated on runway 17L. V1 was 121 KTS, vr was 140 KTS. At 130 KTS left main tire blew out resulting in yaw and deceleration. Takeoff was rejected. Approximately 4000 ft later, aircraft skidded off east side of runway 17L. No injuries. Small fires from hot brakes were extinguished. I believe situation resulted from lengthy taxi with many stops at gross weight on a less than new tire. Resulting heat buildup from taxi and high speed takeoff caused a flaw in the tire to let go. There is no way to prevent this problem in the future. A normal preflight inspection of this tire did not reveal any flaws or problems with this tire. Special attention was given to both tires during preflight because it was known before preflight inspection that a high speed takeoff was necessary.

Title: CAPT OF LTT CPR ACFT ABORTED TKOF DUE TO BLOWN MAIN LNDG GEAR TIRE RESULTING IN LOSS OF ACFT DIRECTIONAL CTL CAUSING THE ACFT TO SKID OFF THE SIDE OF THE RWY.
Narrative: AFTER TAXIING APPROX 3 MI FROM FBO TO RWY 17L FOR TKOF (APPROX 30 MIN AT GROSS WT) RECEIVED TKOF CLRNC. NO FLAP TKOF WAS INITIATED ON RWY 17L. V1 WAS 121 KTS, VR WAS 140 KTS. AT 130 KTS L MAIN TIRE BLEW OUT RESULTING IN YAW AND DECELERATION. TKOF WAS REJECTED. APPROX 4000 FT LATER, ACFT SKIDDED OFF E SIDE OF RWY 17L. NO INJURIES. SMALL FIRES FROM HOT BRAKES WERE EXTINGUISHED. I BELIEVE SITUATION RESULTED FROM LENGTHY TAXI WITH MANY STOPS AT GROSS WT ON A LESS THAN NEW TIRE. RESULTING HEAT BUILDUP FROM TAXI AND HIGH SPD TKOF CAUSED A FLAW IN THE TIRE TO LET GO. THERE IS NO WAY TO PREVENT THIS PROBLEM IN THE FUTURE. A NORMAL PREFLT INSPECTION OF THIS TIRE DID NOT REVEAL ANY FLAWS OR PROBLEMS WITH THIS TIRE. SPECIAL ATTN WAS GIVEN TO BOTH TIRES DURING PREFLT BECAUSE IT WAS KNOWN BEFORE PREFLT INSPECTION THAT A HIGH SPD TKOF WAS NECESSARY.
