Tire Situation

I'm new to the forum as well as owning a Jeep. I've had mine all of 2 days and I just noticed this. I don't think I ran over anything but I didn't notice it until today due to some vibrations/wobble feeling.

Any ideas what did this?

Tire separation. Do not drive it like that, the tire will blow.

Thanks. The rest look fine but low on tread. I knew it was about time but this made it easy on me.

So who has the best deal on some 31x10.5x15's?

Be sure to have your front-end's toe-in checked and adjusted when you get new tires. Tire damage like that is often caused by a bad toe-in adjustment.

Thanks for all the quick responses. Been checking this place out a few weeks and have learned a bunch. Already bed lined the flares.

Tire Rack has a fairly decent selection of AT tires and SOME off-road varieties.

check the tire codes on the sidewall to see what the mfg year is. They may just be old.
