Hi, I know the standard response is any sidewall damage replace the tire. These are brand new tires and as you will see no cord or steel showing. Can I just superglue the flap down?

  • Welcome to Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair! As far as a "standard answer" of "you must replace", that isn't always a given. I'd answer your question, but I can't see the images at work. If the question is still lingering after I get home, I'll take a look and give you my opinion. Usually, as long as there's no cords showing, no bulging/deformities, or pressure loss over time, the tire is usually good to go. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Aug 15 '18 at 18:03
  • I wouldn't use any kind of cyanoacrylate (superglue); they're too brittle and need moisture to activate. – BillDOe Aug 15 '18 at 18:36
