Tire problems -Again!!

My '13 ZL1 has 2200 miles and so far I've replaced 2 tires. Had a nail in the RR and sidewall blow out on FL.

Now I see this when cleaning the tires. It looks like a close call on a flat but the object that caused it didn't go though. I can't tell how deep it is but it's on the tread.

Should I be concerned about having yet another tire blowout from this?

I've done it before on other tires. It's not deep enough for concern unless you're really anal about your tires. Happens with sticky tires, just a cut from an object on the road.

I'm currently waiting on 2 rears due to nails - although they were not far off needing replacement anyway so it's not all bad

I have been running one with a piece of metal in the tire for 2500 miles. Slow leak. Went 160, ran it on the track, etc. Hasn't been a problem. One of these days I plan to plug it to stop the slow leak.

I've had two 2 nails on two separate pair of rear tires. Just going to get the 3rd pair installed. M-fer these tires are expensive!
