    Hey guys,

    I was changing a CV the other day and spotted a small nick/gouge in the sidewall of my BFG's. The tires have less than 5,000 miles on them.

    Not the world's best picutre, but its roughly 1/8" deep. Is this something to be concerned about? I've never seen anything similar happen to a tire, its just in a really weird location. I got the road hazzards on the tires, but the tire shop is 150 miles away, otherwise I would just check with them.

    Thanks in Advance,
    Brett
