Tire Issue

I have a bubble on my driver side front Michelin 235 80R 22.5" tire which has about 5000 miles and a mfg date of the 18th week of 2013. I am having it replaced on Monday, but my question is how do I tell if it was caused by a road hazard, pot hole, etc., or a manufacturing problem. Any help would be appreciatedClick image for larger version

Looks like a broken belt to be. Could. Be a defect or caused by a blow to the tread or sidewall. What model tire is it? XRV?

The picture seems to indicate that it is a defect. Any scuffing or damage in the immediate area would lead them to believe it was road damage. The lack of obvious damage would indicate a defect. IMHO

Normally the tire dealer can inspect it and determine the cause.

Ridges like that one are common on radial tires. Whether yours is a defect, normal manufacturing process, or damage may only be determined by an expert dismounting the tire and performing a thorough examination.
