Yes, I believe bulges are bad. The Globie isn't moving until I have new tires mounted on the rims, which I will reinstall on the trailer.

I have never had a tire actually come apart. I have come back to my car and found a flat and changed it. I usually spot a tire with a nail in it before it becomes a problem. I did have a plug come out of a tire when I hit a rail road track and I pulled over as soon as I could and changed it. It did happen to be raining in the bad side of town. I am running 50 psi 235/75-15 XL BF Goodrich car tires on my trailer and I don't expect any problems with them until they get about 10 yrs old. At that point, I will put them on my flat bed trailer that rarely gets used. It has 4 tires and nothing to tear up when a tire blows.

okay okay okay, I get it! As a late teen/20 something, I worked for four years in a Chevron station, selling among other things, tires (repairing, mounting new, balancing) I caught my share of failing tires on customer's cars... I take it seriously. I ordered Bridgestone LT 255 75 15s today.
