Curb bit my tire today. The deepest part of the cut is 5/16" - 3/8" max . Doesn't go down to the chords or anything.
Should I be taking it off the Car ASAP or is it safe to run on for 2 - 4 weeks?

Do you have a warranty on these tires? If so I would replace it asap.

Replace it when possible, especially if driving at higher speeds (highway, out of town).

Just gotta hit an object or pothole on the road, and you could have a blowout.

I'd be ok driving on it. Its a slice in the outer rubber layer, not a bubble.

if there are no exposed cords typically it is still safe, but if you are not sure I would drive by a tire store you trust just in case and ask.

Sucks but for safety sake . . . should be replaced ASAP. Cool

Black RTV, you guys do come up with some good ones.

Since i still have a 5th Wheel sitting boxed up, I may keep this one as is for a full size spare. Would be better than nothing if a tire was shot and I needed to run it for a week.

Warranty covers defects in material or workmanship. Warranty doesn't cover something damaging the tire, unless you get a road hazard warranty. Even then, hitting the curb might not be covered.

Really? I got my tires frome Dobbs and it comes with a lifetime warranty and they told me they'll replace it no matter what. I just need too find my damn paperwork for it. Laughing

IMO road hazard warranties are a scam and should be avoided at all costs.

Agreed again. Any warranty for that matter, from the small appliance warranty to those wasteful 'new car extended warranties'. Those companies have spent millions to figure out they will be the ones making money Cool [/i]
