Hi Guys

Outward bulges are big time bad news, usually mean open ply splices in the
tire, just waiting for a blowout. Inward bulges, dents, are heavy ply
splices and besides looking bad are not really dangerous. Hope you have road
hazard insurance on these, even if not check with the manufacturer as this
is a defect.
