Schwalbe Blizzard, kinking

Anyone had this. I bought a Schwalbe Blizzard, fitted it no problems and rode the first couple of hundred miles, again no problem. The tyre has now developed a marked kink and no longer runs true. Looks like the carcass has a bulge but on closer inspection it is clear that the carcass has "changed shape" rather than one surface bulging. I have checked and double checked that there is no tube twist or wheel damage.

    Not had it but if you send a photo to Schwalbe with an explanation they may well replace it.

    I had a different issue with some Durano S tyres and they replaced them no problem.
    Yellow is the new Black.
