Ok, im pretty sure i know the answer all ready though it needs confirmation by Tyre garages but do you think this tyre is fooked?;

Managed to catch it on a screw/nail head (was poking out horizontally). At the deepest part the slice is about 2mm deep and then narrows as it heads towards the shoulder.

And, no you cant see the cords
 
Hi....not nice.

I'm afraid its too much damage to risk, even if you cant see the cords. I would expect this to have bruised and potentially damaged the cords which could cuase a balloon at any time, not least underload.

Let alone a Porsche, is it really worth risking on any car?
 
Not really and already thought the worse tbh.

I dont suppose you happen to have a 295/30/18 N2 PS2 with 4mm tread in stock?

I dont suppose anyone knows where i can get tyres shaved do they?
 
Will have a look.

Shaved? :?:
 
I know of one that has 6mm across the tread, i need to get down to 4mm as im lead to believe that the change would result in interesting cornering characteristics
 
I could do that as well..

Didnt think you could mix N ratings?
