Is that even possible?

So yesterday i bought two used tires from craigslist(1st mistake), i inspected the tires for any patches or visible damages,(but i didnt check the side of the tires).
Today i went to my tire shop to install them, so one was installed and no problems,
while i was waiting to install the second one, the gentelmen that took care of my wheel called me and show me this!









I was shocked, the gentelmen clearly blamed the guy that sold me the tire.

So i was wondering what is the main reason of such damage.
pothole?(tire was used)
while he was mounting the tire he messed up something?

I just sent a sms to the craigslist guy who of course denied that the wheel was damaged...

side wall damage is usually caused by pot holes

or if this happens to a new tire when being installed, kiss the installer as he just saved your life and that of others

Yup. Looks like he hit something in the road that damaged the sidewall. That tire is trashed.
