    If it were me, I'd also be concerned about the cut in the side of the tyre.

    As Dave says, I'd be more concerned about the tyre itself. It depends on how deep the gash goes and if it's on the thicker part of the sidewall. Might want to get a tyre place to cast an eye over it quickly.

    Star silver is a good match but not perfect. It's metallic and the standard snowflake colour isn't.

    I've repaired Mine and from a distance you can't tell

    I'd be more worried about possible splits/cracks in the alloy, as it's quite common on snowflakes to start with
