    It sounds like the car came with LRR tires. Some have very soft sidewalls and hitting curbs etc can cause failure. The appropriate thing to have done would have been to call the tire manufacturer.
    Due to a recent promotion, I should now be referred to as Major Obvious.

    I would not be trying to provide information and knowledge if I did not sympathize.

    Some days it is just not worth chewing through the restraints to face life.

      I wish to inform you that you may serve a written notice to the car dealer, car manufacturer and the tyre manufacturer. You may explain all the life threatening situations faced by you due the new tyres bursting. If they do not resolve the matter, you may file a lawsuit in the Small Claims Court. You may claim damages and costs. The Court will consider all the facts and decide the matter. Alternatively, you may report the matter to FTC or the office of your State Attorney General. They will investigate your Complaint.

        I feel like I just read my story. I noticed a third bubble today on my third tire and I just replaced a tire two weeks ago. MBZ delay claims they have nothing to do with it. What did you do?

          I repeat this is an issue to discuss with the tire manufacturer. They rate the tires they sell. The car company only contracts to buy a properly rated tire.
          Due to a recent promotion, I should now be referred to as Major Obvious.

          I would not be trying to provide information and knowledge if I did not sympathize.
