hi all,

my ride jumped a curb at about 30-40kph. it caused about an inch gash, about 5mm deep (at deepest point). tire is 2.5 years old.

i don't see bulging or loosing pressure. drove following a straight line, no drifting to the right.

before i go to the tire shop. wanted to know people's opinions, would you replace the tire?

this is a HANDS on TIRE dismounted from the wheel inspection done by a tire professional.

sometimes one can tell by just looking that the tire must be replaced.

just a small bulge on the tire tread image
