I had a bad experience with a valet parker ( I know, I know, but sometimes you just have to)
The result is that the right rear tire has a laceration - a tear like flap in the side wall about 3/16 to 1/4 inch deep and 1 inch long. My service advisor says that the tire is plenty thick along the sidewall and should be no problem (this is a Hankook Ventus Sport K104 size 275 30 19)
Any thoughts on my risk, BTW not tracked but driven.
Am I being stupid over the price of a tire?

Yes, I think so. Sidewall?!? C'mon, do you want to risk a blowout, loss of control, and possibly wheel, body, or some other additional damage? Buy a tire and some peace of mind.

I would get a tire, consider the price of a tire versus the cost of a potential accident or at the very least the inconvience of a unplanned flat tire, Josh
