Road tubeless setup, and have been happy with it for several years. In the past year I have had a couple of my tires blister either on the centerline of the tread or just slightly off it. In one case it was just one blister, and in another I had eight (!) blisters on one tire. Nothing catastrophic happened and I replaced the tires both times. This occurred on a name-brand performance-level tire (not silly light, but still respectable) that I have been using for a couple years now without issue (700c x 25 on a wide rim that nets a true 28mm width). Both incidents were on the rear tire and the tire pressure was at a reasonable 82 psi (5.7 bar). Incidents have happened when tire was only 25% worn in one case and 50% worn in the other. I am not a heavyweight. I do corner a bit hard when the occasion presents itself (love the feeling of railing a corner at speed). A fellow rider using the same tire also had this happen once recently, which somewhat eliminates it being just me. I have had a flawless run with these tires for 3+ years before the recent incidents.
What causes this to happen, especially more than one time? A bad batch of tires? Hard cornering? Bad luck?
