    yikes!


    That reminds me of when I was in for new tires and they were taking off the crappy Dunlop Direzzas (spit, hated those things).. I saw a big sidewall bubble like that and I got to thinking "how fast was I going with THAT on there??"

    I had awesome tires on my 2008 R32 (P-Zeros) and had 2 incidents of sidewall damage, now my S4 has sidewall damage on one of the tires (Super Sports). The important thing here should be, it don't matter what tires you got... pot holes will win.
