Their BFG's and theres a tiny slice, don't think its losing air, but its probably about 1/16" deep. Is there anything to patch it up, or should i just let it be a spare? Any help please.
Thanks

as long as it doesnt cut through the plys your ok, if it did cut through it, you have a very nice spare, or run it until it maybe explodes?

If it is a radial, be very careful. If not, it's not as bad. Have a tire shop that you trust take a look at it. Better to discard a $200 tire than risk your neck.

Tire rules are in Division 7 of the Motor Vehicle Act Regulations.

any size of sidewall slice unless a pinhole, is usually a tire we don't repair at fountain, but if yo wanna use it as a spare, and be very very careful with speeds you could toss a big patch on the inner sidewall and possibly put a tube in it?? i hate tubes though, so if it'll hole air without then go without.

I work at the fountain F111 shop. If its only a small 1/16 deep cut, it can be spotted. Only retread shop in Abbotsford is Kal tire. Take it to their store (King Rd.), theyll let you know if it can be done.
