You can add all of the streets of San Francisco to your list

I replaced my front brake pads this weekend and found a sidewall bulge on the inside of the passenger side front tire (with less than 10K miles on it). Tire rack is sending me a new one, but that is the second tire I have had to replace because of sidewall damage (the passenger side rear went with 4K miles on it). As you probably know, these problems are not covered by warranty, since the tire guys claim they are usually the result of hitting a pothole at speed. And SF has become a maze of potholes, patches and metal plates connected by increasingly small patches of street.

The really scary thing is that I would never have spotted it if I hadn't had the tire off.
