Consumers have filed a total of 4 complaints related to Infiniti TIRES.
Dunlop sp sport 5000 dsst p245/40rf19 developed sidewall bubble spontaneously. These tires were standard when the car was purchased new. I have seen numerous reports of similar complaints of sidewall bubbles following pothole encounters. Tires had only 17,500 miles on them. The fact that there are so many similar complaints leads me to believe there is a manufacturing issue.
