I've bought cheap tyres, expensive tyres, middle of the range tyres and I've had problems on all sorts.
Landed a jump a bit wrong on a RQ with Black Chili compound, deformed the sidewall and tyre wouldn't seat properly - 3 rides in.
Cut a sidewall on a Captain S-Works, didn't seal after, and was about a month old.
Fitted a new Minion DHR in the Alps this summer, and split the sidewall (beyond repair) on a rock after a couple of rides.
Whilst it's frustrating (and expensive) I see it as part of riding particularly over challenging terrain.
Tend to steer clear of the "mega expensive latest trend, must have tyres" these days, look out for bargains, and always have spares in the garage.
