Ok, I got one tire that is whereing like crazy on the outer edge, for only about half the diameter. Had the tire ond rim on the front of the car, and I swaped it to the rear becaouse I thought the front alignment might be off. Nope. Tire is still whereing like crazy. I am thinging the rim is bent, but I get no shake or shimmy or anything out of it. What do y'all think? Bent rim, or just a bad tire?

This is alot more easily diagnosed by a tire shop. Then can mount it on a balancer and really see what it does.

It could be that the tread is delaminating from the base of the tire. I agree with ShawnW take it to a tire shop and ask them what the hey is going on.
