Spanish term or phrase: teta
right fron tire has a "teta"

It is in automotive context.
I guess thet are reffering to a bump of some sort. Eurodic states "teat", is this right?

English translation:blister
Explanation:
In the context of tires, this standard automotive/driving term would make sense -- referring to a raised patch or rubber with a delaminated space below it, caused by friction and heat.

nozzle


Explanation:
I believe that "teta" refers to the nozzle in which you pump air to inflate the tire.

If you need further info about tires, I found this good site:

disagree  xxxJon Zuber: If it were the valve stem (not "nozzle", which is usually an outlet), not only the right front tire would have one.
