Have a 2018 Golf R. In first 2 years I have gone through 4 tires. This is just doing everyday driving, hit a pot hole and bam another bubble on side wall. I have kept the pressure at dealer recommendations. I have always had sports cars and never had this issue with any of them. Any suggestions?

Do you have 19" wheels? Because those will be more susceptible to pothole damage than 18" wheels with higher side walls.
Also have all your tire changes been due to pothole damage?

Yes. I have 19 inch Wheels. I will hit a pot hole and pressure push out to side wall and I get a huge bubble in sidewall.

Yeah, that's quite normal. You can either learn to avoid pot holes or go to 18" wheels and tires, as the bigger side walls help absorb the impacts.
