Bulging tyre

Question : I recently replaced my worn tyres with new 185/60/R15 but I noticed one of the tyres has a bulge on the sidewall.

What should I do ?

Answer : If there was a bulge on the sidewall when the tyre was fitted and being balanced, the tyre shop would have noticed it and replaced the tyre immediately; unless they are blind.

Are you sure you have not climbed or clipped a kerb because this would have damaged the sidewall and caused the bulge.

You may not even be aware of kerbing damage because you can also get similar damage driving through a pothole.

I would suggest that you go back to the shop that sold you the tyres and ask them for an opinion.
