Anyways, it was very weird for me. took it to the tire shop and they replace it in front of me, and the inside was FILLED with rubber chunks, I guess it was defective lol. But definitely get it checked out.
sounds like you rolled a little bit on a flat tire. wore a ring around the inside. rubber chunks is from run flat

This is the answer I got once when I saw this on some new car tires I bought. I thought they were sidewall ruptures but it was just where the sidewall plies overlapped. I've had true internal sidewall ruptures from hitting a median going pretty fast in my mustang...they looked like someone shoved a golf ball under the sidewall.

Well i never drove on it with a flat. Co-worker noticed it and i went out and looked, and it was flat with these huge tumors growing out of it, lol. so i put the spare on and went to get it fixes. The guys at the tire shop had no idea what it was, lol...

It's possible to tell if they're junk from pics, but not to say they're safe.
I've verified hundreds of thousands of tires for quality, in various states of manufacture and finish. The one thing that is important to remember is if in doubt, throw em' out! Safety comes first especially in tires.

100% correct

Yeah that sounds completely normal. Like someone said before, it sounds like where the rubber pieces overlap during the manufacturing process and its fine, but like someone else said, you might wanna take it to someone that knows what they're talking about just to be sure. its hard for us to be certain without actually being there looking at the tires...

41-42psi?? seriously?? do you enjoy the truck riding like a damn rock?

i love my expensive tires, no gashed sidewalls, no bulges, no beads lost.. i often complain about how much they are.. but atleast i know i'm paying for the quality.
