KM2 Sidewall Damage

Had these on the truck for about 9 months now, only about 7,000 miles. I've wheeled the piss out of them. Starting to develop some sidewall chunking...these are pictures from two different tires...none of the chunks go any deeper than exposing casing underneath the black.

These things still safe to drive on, or do I need to scrap 'em? Thoughts appreciated.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Are those the belts, or is it in fact rubber?

I ran some BFG MTs with tons of white showing through the sidewall, from rock damage, never blew one out, had 'em for about 40k. I say you're good to go.

Actaully, wait, those are garbage. I will relieve you of disposal fees, just send them over.

Looks like rubber...wondering if BFG has additional casing in the sidewalls to help strength? They're always pimping their TriGard carcass...
