A buddy of mine changed the brake pads on the passenger side of my truck, ran out of time to do drivers side. I drove a couple days not many miles. I was on expressway and my tire started to go flat, pulled over and this is what I saw, the whole sidewall blew out. Also I just had all 4 tires put on about 2 weeks ago. My question is, if doing only one side of brakes could of caused this?

  • So, what did you see? could be a faulty tire - who can tell?

To my mind, there is no way changing out the brakes on the single side would have any effect on the tire. To me it sounds as though you got a bad tire. I'm assuming the tires you installed are new since you did all four. As long as this is true, take them back and get a new tire put on in place of it, because obviously (to me anyway) you got a defective tire.
