What happened to my tire?


#1

I was stuck in mud, when I got out everything seemed fine until a weird noise started coming from my back left tire. I don’t know what happened.


#2

What kind of vehicle?

#3

It looks like something sharp was down in the mud and gouged that long strip right out of the sidewall.

#4

Agee with Yosemite, spinning the tire against a sharp object, such as a rock in the mud, could do this.


#5

What if it’s front wheel drive vehicle?

#6

Or the inner edge of the tire was badly worn with steel protruding and spinning the tires ripped everything loose on that side.


#7

It’s a Nissan Armada 2007

Yeah no fun. Mine came to a complete stop in the mud then I backed a little and it managed to pull me out and avoided a tow at the compost site. Just got all the mud cleaned off yesterday. I agree, could have been a rock or glass or stick or something but either way who knows but need to have a tire guy take a look.
