Gary : Tire manufacturing defects?

Gary - appreciate your insight and experience on this one

How common are tire manufacturing defects? It seems like stock alignment guy excuse #1 is "bad tire", which for a new-ish tire implies that it has some sort of manufacturing defect. However, my guess is that in modern reputable tire manufacturing plants, defects are exceedingly rare, and those that do occur are caught in a quality control check long before the reach the consumer.
What has your exerience been? In the undoubtedly high volume of tires to pass through the tirerack, how many if any confirmed cases do you actually have of bad tires coming from the manufacturer?

( I don't know if you are interested, but here's the orginal thread which prompted the question. )
