I am not expert but that looks pretty damn close to the lip. I doubt it would hold air for very long after meeting up with a speed bump or 2.

Just my opinion.

Thanks bro. Now I need an expert. This is a $400 tire so if I don't have to replace it would be great.

Did you check to see if it cut the bead or just the rubber? Is the bead above the cut as strong as the rest of the bead? And does it hold air? I have had similar cuts in my tires and they lasted until it was time to replace.


Remember, We do it nice, because we do it twice.

If it was me I'd replace it, may hold air for now, but for how long.

BTW, how did you damage the tire like that?

The bead is very strong. As long as none of the cords are broke you'll be fine! That happens sometimes from the tire machine stretching the bead over the lip of the wheel on low profile tires.

DO NOT TUBE THE TIRE!!!!! that is the worst thing you can do as it will cause additional friction/heat and will degrade the tire fast and potentially cause a blow out.

Its hard to tell from the picture but it looks like it might be ok. It appears that the rip is not that far into the bead so it might hold air just fine. If it does hold air it should be fine as the bead bundle was not affected. Worse case you might need to use a little bead sealer to stop/prevent any small leaks.

Did you mount/dismount the tires yourself? if not where was it done? its not that common to have the machine tear the bead on a 20" tire unless is a 225/30/20
