"The bulge is caused by the car hitting a pothole or a "hump" at speed. On a steel rim, the damage is to the rim but on alloy rims the Tyre absorbs the impact this creats a small pocket in the tyre rubber skin which forms a bubble."
He further stated there that since there is no damage to the Steel Belt, tyre replacement is not needed. This was an year ago.
Hope he knows what he is saying.

One of my Good year F1 tubeless tyres has a rather big bulge. Any idea if there is a way to fix it in any way? I'm not sure if they do this in a tyre clinic. Anyone on this forum with any such experience? Help!
This is actually a tyre I bought second hand. One of my tyres was damaged in an accident and I went to the second hand market as I didn't want to buy just one new tyre. I wanted something that was run for a while. I found one that had hardly any wear out on the diameter. On closer inspection, there was some patch work on the side wall - as if it was torn open and then fixed up - pretty neat job. This tyre is about 6 months old. The bulge is not near the original patch work but in another place. The explanation by Sudherma seems plausible as I just did a Managalore Bangalore trip using the Shiradi route. So the question is - does anyone know where they do such patch work in Bangalore and if bulges can also be fixed?
