One month old tire bites the dust

On about February 26 I had the front tires replaced on my 535i. The Goodyear Excellence tires. One had a sidewall bubble, the other's sidewall was literally ripped apart by pothole. Those tires I replaced were one year old.

Now here it is, one month later... the new right front tire already has a sidewall bubble on it. Insane. This time, I'm going through the warranty process. At least Goodyear puts a Road Hazzard warranty on these tires. But it still sucks I have to deal with it again after just one month.

I swear they must be making these tires out of glass and glue or something.

The closest Goodyear Centers to me are either a Sears Auto Center or a Discount Tire Center. Which do you guys think I should deal with? Or it's almost time for the annual maintenance on the car. Maybe I should just have my dealer handle the situation. I normally avoid the dealer, but I'll need to be going there anyway.

Personally I'd go to the Goodyear Center since you have Goodyear tires on(Assuming not purchased from dealership)...

The dealer should be able to handle the replacement under warranty. It will take a while to get the refund. It took me 4 months to receive a check for $386 on a bubbled 19" tire that was worn by 2/32. You can call Goodyear customer service and get relief.
