Slashed Tire?

My truck has BFG's 265 70 17's and my right rear was kind of low this morning. I went to the gas station to fill it up before I went to work. I got to work and all was good. Started unloading the stock truck, after about 2 hours of work, one of the guys came in a said, "Do you know ValDeze has a flat tire?" I thought it was the leak in it, and I could plug it there. I went out there and this is what I found...


I had to get a new one at the tire place accross the street, and its a goodyear and it was $400!!

It kind of looks like someone cut it, but other than that I have no idea how it would of got cut in the sidewall. What do ya'll think? Should I start lookin for azzes to kick?

I don't think it's slashed dude. I think you might have caught something that was in a snow pile or something. the holes look to rough on the edges to be a slash. BTW Good luck with the goodyear... scum of all tires.

Doesnt look slashed...it would be more like a smoother cut if that was the case.

I would say if it was intentional someone pounded something into it. And with holes that big if you just hit something and it wasn't intentional it would have had to be awful close to your work cuz I'm sure it went down fast, and you would have noticed that. I've had smaller holes than that and you could hear it pop when it happened.
