I haven't really heard of people trying burnouts in an SUV..maybe they do,but its not common.
This could be more of a ripped tire,due to road conditions.

I don't think its because of burnouts, it must be a ripped tyre. There are no marks on the alloy rim.

Exactly,I feel its probably a case of driving on a punctured tire for an extended period of time.

The read mounted wheel gives the Cayenne a RAV4 look.

Must have sprong a leak, and the owner must be feeling 'im too important to be seen changing a puntured tyre' and must have driven on.

Hi,

You could be right maybe that or a tyre burst.

That to me looks like a runflat. The sidewalls have survived due to their added stiffness while the rest has peeled away. Could be wrong though.

Too important to change tyres but not important enough to be seen carrying a spare alloy with no tyre
