I noticed the sidwall seperating from the tread on the inside of my tire while I was washing my car and took it to a tire dealer who replaced my tire. The tire(s) only have 8858 miles on them and not sure how long it was like that. The seperation was about 4 inches long. My other 3 tires have crackes arounds the tread and side wall as did the tire that had the seperation, but because the side wall had yet to seperate the tire dealer would not replace the other three.
