Tire Bubble

Just noticed this on my right front tire. The tires are continental extreme contact date code 4614. I bought the car used about two years ago from a VW dealership.

Wondering what my options are?

Thanks,
Frank

That's what I was afraid of. The treads in pretty good shape. I was considering replacing all four but I guess I can get away with just replacing the front. Then in the future I won't be buying four tires at once. The front and back will be staggered.

Your options are:

1. Park the car and replace the tire.

2. Keep driving and die on the highway.

That looks bad. Not repairable. Time for a new tire.
