    The first pic looks like the sidewall was pinched and the second looks like a near sidewall puncture. I've had tires that look like both of those on my Jeeps while playing on the rocks at Paragon several years ago with the tires aired way down.

    That last pic is just an obvious belt seperation... I cannot imagine even trying to drive on that tire and not notice that.. The last belt seperation I saw was when a friend of mine hit an open man hole that was missing the cover in the middle of the road... The tire didn't blow out but the belt seperated and created a big lump across the tread..

    All these things are belt breaks or belt seperations liek stated above. This is why u dont buy cheap tires Goodyears are notorious for this. Have had 2 tires do it. Stick to Michelin.

    Never saw any tires like that, but at my last job we tried to go the cheap route with some Kumho's on a 1 ton van. Good for about 30,000 miles but after that we lost 3 of them to blow outs in exatly three weeks. I know I was driving for two of them. Weird thing each tire went on a Tuesday one week after the next.
