I agree with blackfang. Note, though, that he said "sometimes." I expect that experience feeling separations makes it easier to detect. As for ours, I didn't run my hand over the tread or other parts of the tire beforehand. I can only report that there was no abnormal noise nor other indication. Fortunately for us, when the tire failed it was on the rear and, though there was a 'bang!' it didn't cause the car to do anything worse than get squirrely from having a sudden flat back there.

Good luck to you, agentphish. I think the dealer will be able to take care of this for you, though it may take a couple trips. {Unless it's a tire. Then you'll have to get the Bridgestone, or whomever, guys to replace it.}
