Interesting that it ended up in there if it didn't come off the tire itself

A balance patch from the factory?......... Gotta love interco

It would be my guess that the patch was put in at a tire shop, it interco is putting out product like that it should be sold as seconds or defects or something. Did you not notice the patch when you bought the tires or were they mounted before you saw them?

They do I've had many brand new sets of swampers and some of them had those in there.Years ago I got a set of 38.5 sx's and all 4 had a big patch.
