    Is my tire ok?

    Hello,

    I was biking the other day and I was cornering over rocky terrain on my road bike. It seems to have pierced the rubber layer of my tire. Should I change the tire?

    Thanks!

    Does the tube poke out when you inflate it?

    Toss a boot on it, it looks pretty minimal. If it's already an old tire, replace it.
    Attack in the feeling because it says I'll win absolutely.

    If tube doesn't come through, should be good. I put a dab of shoe goo in cuts like that.

    If you can't see chords you're good to go.

    I have a similar split in one of my tires. No blemishes at all on the inside surface of the tire, or on the tube. I filled it with Shoe Goo at the direction of some others here on BF and it has been fine the past 100+ miles.
