View Full Version : LT235/85R16 G Rated Tire W/Small Cuts

Does anyone know what the side wall thickness of these Goodyear LT235/85 R16 G614 rated tires are. I scraped a rock wall and have three surface cuts less than an 1/8" Deep X 3/4" inch long on one tire. I don't think they look like they will be a problem. The tire is not loosing any air. These tires are only 3yrs old and only have about 12K miles on them. They still look like new since I keep them covered when not in use.
I was wondering if a couple of little 1/8"DEEP X 1/2' long cuts would weaken the structure of the tire since I don't know how thick the tires are to begin with. I really don't know much about tires and hope there is someone out there that does and can help with a decision
on weather to replace the tire or can I live with it for a couple of years?? Any help would be appreciated.

If they were my tires I would not be worried. Such small cuts couldn't hurt them.

Just keep a close eye on it. If cracks appear to get bigger, or open, remove it
