    It looks more like heat or impact damage rather than an actual cut
    Equally, I doubt a MoT tester would notice it

    From the photos it looks more like surface damage, and does not go any lower than the main tread depth
    However if there is segmential damage, that goes below the main tread depth, then take a measurement across the tyre
    The damage must not exceed 25mm in width across the tyre

    Thanks m8, the damage goes a bit lower than the actual thread maybe 2-3mm. would that be ok safety wise?
