I have 3 tires and the 4th has a nice slice in the sidewall but i cant find another used tire to match the set anymore. is there anyway to fix a sidewall cut? is it worth it?

Technically it can be patched from the inside, but for safety reasons most shops won't do it.

The best option from a saftey standpoint is to have the cut one and another one tubed, then run them on the rear.

although some shops will fix a sidewall repair (illegally), 4" is far too big to fix, especially for a radial. even if you fixed it with a structural patch,and got it to hold air, you wouldnt find me anywhere near it. unfortunately its toast.

Even if you or some shop did patch it would you honsetly feel safe driving it around? I would be pising my pants every second, especially on the Hwy.
