Possibly from my recent encounter with a curb I noticed a gash on one of my tires.

It looks like a slice. I wanted to use a glue to keep it in place.

Picture is attached.

  • Need to see more, how deep? can you see the plies? If you can then replace it.

  • Yeah, if you can see the fibres that give the tire strength it should be replaced.

Are the plies exposed?

If so, this tyre is clearly damaged and is now weaker in this area.

It is now far more probable that tyre will blow out when driven at fast speeds over an uneven surface, such as road derbis or a pothole.

Were I in your situation, I would without a doubt change this tyre as a matter of priority.

The loss of the price of a tyre is small and bounded.

The loss of your life, the life of your passengers, and the life of other road users or pedesterians is priceless.
