I brought my truck in for an oil change today and asked them about a slightly unusual sound coming from this wheel at slow speeds. They found my tire looking like this. This was on the inner side of my truck. I just drove it to Atlanta and back on Monday, most likely with this tear. Lucky it did not blow out. Uniroyal made in Korea tire with 40K miles on it. One other tire starting to do the same thing. They said they have never seen anything like it and still hold air. Four new Michelin tires going on tomorrow.
