It may have been "noticed in the driveway" but I'd bet it sure didn't "happen in the driveway". Not unless there was something really jagged and nasty in the driveway that it ran over.

I'm betting that's road hazard damage and it probably doesn't matter what brand of tire...likely any tire would have been damaged by whatever was run over or hit.

I donít recall if I ran over anything when I went to pick up the RZR (20miles round trip) 3weeks ago

I live in the Las Vegas area and the last few days it has been over 110 degrees so it happened sometime between Sunday and this Saturday morning, that side of the trailer gets the most sun

to me it looks like road damage like it pinched on the side of a curb or large rock.

I'm no expert...but that looks like tread separation to me!

In the first shot look at the strange wear on the tire above the hole in the tire...

Plus notice on the inside of the tire how the tread is actually pulled away from the inner air chamber!

In the second shot, look below the hole in the tire and notice how uneven the tread pattern is on the ground (most especially the left side of the tire)...it is not flat at all!

By the way, I think Gladiator tires are in the same class as the infamous 'TowMax' tires...AKA - 'BlowMax' tires!

Agreed, it appears to be tread/belt separation.

It wasnít flat full air pressure looked separated indeed
Rubbed my hands across the other tires and didnít feel any uneven wearing

They look like they have been setting in the sun and have dry rot. You need to cover your tires when they set facing directly into the sun. Ultra Violet rays will eat tires like mice eat cheese. Get some good tire covers if you store outside. Any RV store has them. For those in the SW part of the country this is even more so.
