Peace of mind, I would replace it. I know it's expensive, but you can't put a price on safety.

The picture is small, it looks as if the rubber isn't cut very thick, I think you will be ok. I am basing my input on a very tiny blurry picture tho.

Replace it. Like stated above, peace of mind is worth the 300 bucks it'll cost.

Maybe you can salvage the tire and use it as a spare if you can find a cheap rim for sale.
