Most of the time its a heavy load (ie, 5/6/7 people) and tyres which aren't extra load rated. Have a look on the sidewall, make sure it says "Reinforced" or "Extra Load" or something similar - if not they aren't up to the job!

Is it definitely just the outsides? what pressures are they running at?

Couple more questions, how long have you had the car?  And what was the condition of the tyres that came off in December and how old were they?

Its not so much that, the Galaxy REQUIRES extra load tyres due to the chassis weight. FYI if you don't have them, you'll probably have your insurance voided.
