    Got any pics?

    If not I WOULD take to a tyre specialist to make sure. You don't want a random blow-out at high speed. A couple of hundred quid is worth more than your life /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/angel.gif

    Where is it ? sidewall ? tread ?

    If its in the sidewall chances are it will grow.
    Change tyre. Ideally you should change 4 tyres all at the same time on a 4x4 car, but if the others don't have much wear on them I'd just change the one.

    Sounds like a form of blistering or rupture within the tyre, but I'm no expert and as Moff said get it to someone who knows.

    I would change it anyway whatever the outcome, because if it's a pocket of air it could blow out causing complete tyre failure.

    I can only see a reason to change one if the tyres are new, but also are they still covered under warranty?
