    So I just saw Thor separation on side wall of my stock Bridgestone tires. No rim damage near split looks just like it split. First is it daft to drive 15 miles to dealer. I have the Mack daddy warranty which includes road hazard but wondering if I should put spare on it or drive like it is.

    That's no bueno, have you lost any air pressure? I'd play it safe and put on spare. It doesn't take long and could save you from even bigger headaches.

    It shouldn't take you long to swap it out and be safe. You don't want that thing to blow out while driving 50mph...

    That cut sort of looks like it has been deliberately done. Knife cut? Angry neighbor, ex gf, ..? :notsure:

    Agreed, cut looks too uniform to be a tear. Had a spate of tire slashing here a while back until they rounded up some no good kiddos
