Its obvious the tire was put on upside down, flip it over and you might find the problem. Like mentioned a few posts above about Firestone, those were the model/size of tires under that old firestone recall, I replaced many sets of those damn tires on exploders/rangers and saw a few blow outs and tread seperations too. A few of those sets of tires didnt get destroyed and ended up on other vehicles, trailers etc with no problems though.

As you can see from the pic, the bead is not seated at all. Just reseat it and you should be good to go.
