Just noticed a small chunk out of a tyre where is has been kerbed.

Could you please tell me if this is safe/legal.



It is about 2mm deep and there are no wires showing.

ive got similar damage on my 2 fronts. i went to 2 different tyre places and they said its ok.
thanks

This will be a very opiniated subject so I think I will just see how it goes and keep a close eye on it. I think as long as theres no visable wiring or buldges it is fine.

I had a similar chunk out a tyre on my old car for ages and was never a problem.

Its only illegal if it exposes the inner cables.

Plenty of tyres with this kurb damage - its designed like that. Thats why it pertrudes along the rim. Its actually called the rim protector ;)

When I was buying my car the two fronts were like this... They MOT'd it for me and it passed but advised they were changed... Had already been agreed in the deal so so i never had to drive on them!
