Default Blew tire today with 2000 mile on truck

Well I was coming home from beach after a 6 hours with one quick bathroom break. My TPS go's nuts and the truck kicks in the safety mode, and slows itself down allowing me pull off the road. Now we never hit anything in the road nor a pot hole. We pull off the the road. Change the tire in the dark when I go it home and could look at it I was surprised to find only the tire has what looks like 1 inch holes spaced about every 5-6 inches around the outside sidewall the tread looks as if its bulging every 5-6 inches also. The tires only have approx 2200 miles on them. I'm going tomorrow to check into this my question is this something the dealer/Chrysler needs to know about. I going to try and attach a photo of the tire. I hope it works.

Good luck! I'm thinking that they'll cover it under your tire warranty, especially as it appears to be catastrophic failure...

My tires had 51 lbs in them when I bought the truck max pressure is 44lbs and the door says 40 lbs. Now I have the 17s but I think you should check the pressure in the rest of them just to be safe.

Kidding, it almost looks like someone slashed your tires while you were driving.
