Normal landing runway 17R air traffic area; on speed normal braking. At left turnoff; aircraft did not want to make a left turn. Exited runway with a right 270 degree turn. Initially believed problem with steering system. At examination; noticed right tire off rim. Left tire normal. Right tire damage appeared to be due to exiting runway with tire off rim. Callback conversation with reporter revealed the following information: reporter stated that a portion of his written report was incorrect and that the end of the first sentence should have read '...did not want to make a left turn.' reporter believes that because of the tire's generally good condition; the tire/bead seal failed allowing the tire to deflate. The deflated tire created great resistance on the right side and so determined its direction of travel. The aircraft was not completely clear of the runway and so closed that runway for about 1 hour. This aircraft has been meticulously maintained although it is an older aircraft.

Title: A C33 PLT RPTS A R TIRE FAILURE ON LNDG RESULTING IN DIFFICULTY STEERING.
Narrative: NORMAL LNDG RWY 17R ATA; ON SPD NORMAL BRAKING. AT L TURNOFF; ACFT DID NOT WANT TO MAKE A L TURN. EXITED RWY WITH A R 270 DEG TURN. INITIALLY BELIEVED PROB WITH STEERING SYS. AT EXAMINATION; NOTICED R TIRE OFF RIM. L TIRE NORMAL. R TIRE DAMAGE APPEARED TO BE DUE TO EXITING RWY WITH TIRE OFF RIM. CALLBACK CONVERSATION WITH RPTR REVEALED THE FOLLOWING INFO: RPTR STATED THAT A PORTION OF HIS WRITTEN RPT WAS INCORRECT AND THAT THE END OF THE FIRST SENTENCE SHOULD HAVE READ '...DID NOT WANT TO MAKE A L TURN.' RPTR BELIEVES THAT BECAUSE OF THE TIRE'S GENERALLY GOOD CONDITION; THE TIRE/BEAD SEAL FAILED ALLOWING THE TIRE TO DEFLATE. THE DEFLATED TIRE CREATED GREAT RESISTANCE ON THE R SIDE AND SO DETERMINED ITS DIRECTION OF TRAVEL. THE ACFT WAS NOT COMPLETELY CLR OF THE RWY AND SO CLOSED THAT RWY FOR ABOUT 1 HR. THIS ACFT HAS BEEN METICULOUSLY MAINTAINED ALTHOUGH IT IS AN OLDER ACFT.
