You are fine there. No worries. Small advice: Keep this tire at the rear only to be on the safer side.

Saket.

Hi guys, noticed this crack on the side of my tyre today. These are Apollo Alnac 4G R14 tyres on my Figo 1.5 diesel. My instincts tell me to replace the tyre but these are as new(or old) as the car itself and have run for 27 months and 19500 Kms.

These have at least double the life left as per the thread depth. Please advise.

Get rid of it. I won't even keep it as a spare.

Tread depth is only one aspect. Side wall failure leading to tire burst can be much more disastrous.

I noticed a cut in the front tyres of my Renault Scala. Attaching pics. I am out on a holiday with the car. Planning to replace the tyre once i am back. It would be around 700 kms till i am back. Any idea if it's safe till then?

Fine cracks that you are absolutely sure to be superficial can only be passed as ok. And this is certainly not superficial.

Change with the spare tire immediately.

Out of the question.
Change it immediately. This is NOT, repeat NOT, a superficial damage. At any speed the Tyre in this condition can blowout.
So change it immediately. Dont be penny wise and pound foolish in this matter. And Dont procrastinate either.

The damage on the side needs to be inspected.

The tire is OK if the ply cords are not damaged.
Easy to inspect.

You can see that in the EU certification process a faulty rubber cover in the side is NOT listed as a failure on the tire certification test.

http://eurlex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/L...0060101:en:PDF

Please note, the criteria for a tire to fail the test:

"6.2.2. A tire which, after undergoing the relevant load/speed test, does not
exhibit any tread separation, ply separation, cord separation, chunking
or broken cords is deemed to have passed the test."

So, if the damage doesn´t compromise the ply cords, you don't need to worry.
