    I thought it was funny. But Alien is one of my favorite movies. It's on my annual rotation of films I rewatch. I know practically all the dialogue and have every scene blocked out.

    Good tip with tires is check the date on them sometimes shops push old tires. Shouldn't be no more than a year or two old. Tires only last around 5 to 7 years (depending on brand etc ) before die rot kicks in. Same goes for car batteries check the date and don't buy ones that been sitting few years.

    I personally would not buy from the same manufacturer with a side wall bubble its poor quality tire from probably a poor manufacturer. This happened to two of my continental pro contacts I had to jump ship to a good year and haven't had a problem since. Foreign tires are really good as well but are not specifically tested for America's terrible pothole problem.

    That's a steel-belted radial tire the inner steel belt inside the tire has separated. Tire is faiing. you need to get rid of that tire ASAP. Very dangerous

    Thanks everyone. I drove my car and dropped it off at the tire shop after work last night. New tires should be arriving there by today. Hoping to pick it up after work today.

    Actually. There is no steel belt on the sidewall. Only rubber plys for the sidewall. The sidewall ply have come detached over each other from a pothole or large bump. If u mark the location of that “bulge” and then feel where it is on inside of the tire when its off. U can feel the different texture compared to the other parts of the inside of the sidewall
