Luckily I have the rim+tire insurance plan [does it have a limit???] this is the 4th tire with a bubble. The Good-for-a-Year [Goodyears Eagle LS] seems to have a soft sidewall hence the bubble every 4 months. I do live in NJ and the winter has ruined the streets here. Question: the low profile Goodyear tires just don't seem to hold up for me, can I put a higher profile tire on my rim? Maybe that will stop the bubbles. Going to the dealer is becoming a hassle [4 times now!!].
