    yes, replace it. when that tire heats up it will bulge and blow out. I wouldn't want road rash on the ski next....that would be a bit more expensive to fix

    Tire shops won't fix a side wall gash. I've gotten something as simple as a trim nail in my side wall and had to be replaced. As the tire heats up from road wear it will bulge and blow out. Not something that develops over time, it just happens. I hope your life is worth more than $300 as previously stated. Fix it and move on. Piece of mind.
