Sometimes the tire really is coming off. Sometimes the belts are coming out of the tire. Such is life. Don't worry: eventually something will come apart and you'll be able to easily determine what caused the problem.

AnswerYou might want to the lug nuts to see if they are tight and that all of them are there.

If car is mechanically sound, you have a separated tire, no doubt. Put some good gloves on and run your hands around the tires. You will feel the hump on the tread. If you don't feel it on the first go, drive the car ahead one half tire revolution, and try again. Humps like to hide on the first try, sometimes.

Tire out of balance, tire defect, bent wheel, defective wheel bearing, loose lug nuts, or worn suspension or steering parts.

Normally this is caused by a tire out of balance or a bent wheel.
