Aircraft an small transport. In attempting to make the turnoff on runway 21C, I applied hard braking. After exiting the runway, the right main tire blew. Although I did not believe I used unusually hard braking, the tire was worn completely through in one spot. The aircraft was well clear of the active, but airport operations elected to close the runway anyway.
