Car mechanics/tire experts, I found a small sharp stone stuck on my tire?
I removed it and this is how it looks like now. Should I replace tire? I checked psi, nothing changed so far. Using michellin ps4

check the age of the Tyre if less than 6 years old nothing to worry about

Watch and wait. If it's still full after a few days you can probably forget about it.

Nah, should be fine. Only have to worry if it creates a leak. The steel belt will stop things like this, not so much a nail or screw that has a chance to take a long ride and get pounded into the tire over time.

I've just pulled those out time after time and had no problems. Like the other guy said, check with soapy water for bubbling. No bubbles, no leak. Enjoy your day.

That appears to be in a thick part of the tread so it should be fine. I would put some soapy water on it. If it bubbles replace. If not the tire is fine.

If you are not losing any air pressure just keep driving on it. No cord plies were damaged from the looks of it.Source(s): Mitsubishi Master Tech

I can't tell from the photo. Do you see steel cord? Of so, it needs attention

The risk is that it could suddenly fail. Take it to the tyre station and get it vulcanised.
