    TO ME... the secondary pattern next to the "main fracture" certainly hints that something hit the tyre.
    Someone suggested a cats eye - perhaps?

    With our roads being so bad, how can they conclusively tell if the damage was caused by a manufacturing defect or from the roads?

    Do they go back to the factory, pull some batch number off the tire and compare it to the inspection data for that batch? Or do they just look at it and say, "yeah, tire looks ok in other areas and therefore must be some external factor?"
    Absolutely agree with you, I think it comes down to communication and in my case, I wanted to know what might have happend. The tyre is replaced as under insurance. As per my added comment, Dunlop have made contact and will check the tyre - purely because the damage was so extensive.
