Default Bump in tire sidewall

Hello all, I have a 02 TL Type-S and I saw a bump in my front wheel sidewall
yesterday, not sure what it is, doesn't look like any sort of nail or
puncture, it's just a bump on the side of the tire. I'll probably take it
to a tire shop to check out but what is this exactly. Don't want to get
fleeced so any info is helpful. Thanks.

could be a blister;a sidewall defect. Not good for safety.
might be covered under your tire warranty.
Pick a tire store that deals in the brand of tire you have.

Bad! A bump is a blister (as Jim says). You will most likely eventually
have a blowout.

Get a new tire.
