but lacking that I will backtrack a little.
I seriously doubt that the typical use of a sprayer at a car wash will cause any damage to your tires.
Per the Popular Mechanics warning I referenced, a home-type with rapid pulsations require greater care and concern.
I'm sure that even a car-wash type sprayer could do some damage if you held tight to the tire trying to "clean" it. A more sensible, typical use (like I have plenty of times) shouldn't cause any damage.
p.s., the original poster washing his car a week ago and the tire failing could be completely unrelated. Without knowing his washing habits, we shouldn't assume anything. We don't know if he was using a home pressure washer tight to the tire, or a self-serve.
p.p.s., why would anyone use a pressure washer at home? If you have a hose with hand sprayer, a bucket of soapy water, and a soft-bristle brush, what more do you need?
