I have had that happen a few times over the years.
Found them when they start hitting the lief springs.
Take your pocket knife, lance it and you can still make it home.
Or at least where you can get a new tire.

Sold Gates tires back in the 60's. They'd do that bulging on the side wall quite a bit.
