Should I worry about this?(4 posts)

Should I worry about this?Timmer

I noticed this mark on the sidewall of my front tire. It's not really a cut...it's more like an abrasion. It doesn't really look like it's going to blow out, but it makes me a little nervous.
So should I bite the bullet and buy a new tire, or should I just not worry about it? Thanks for your help!

Serious sidewall damage is pretty common and should be considered a safety issue. Tires are a lot cheaper than med/surg costs..... so why risk it? That being said, if the abrasion is minimal I just keep an eye on them.
