Two! not one but two of the oem tires have bubbles in the sidewall. That is a blow out waiting to happen and god knows what damage that can do. I'm afraid to drive the car for fear that one of the tires could blow out and send me off into a ditch. To top it off, the car did not come with a spare tire (to save weight and improve gas mileage) so if it does blow out and I can safely control the car over to the side of the road, I'm screwed and stranded. This happened to me last year and I had to have the car towed to the dealer and buy a new tire. Blow outs are very dangerous. Now I have to call a towing company to get my car and go get new tires.
