Default Gouge/cut in R compound tire, is it still ok?



There's a couple of cut/long gouges in these Hoosiers (looks like contact against the fender/strut) I was wondering if they are still ok to use for autox? I don't see any cords or anything but just wanted to make sure.

Hoosier says as long as cords aren't showing you're good to go.

Use em up!

Yeah, I did that once with my black Camaro, with them rubbing against the rear control arms. As long as there is no cord, you're okay, but definitely get a spacer on there to prevent further damage.

that's my only concern about the tires. Last thing I need is to have a blow out at 45mph
