Default To replace or not (or fix if possible)

These tires that I have on mine are so fragile that a light contact with curbside damaged the sidewall while parking. Would love to hear from any tire experts whether to replace or looks fine as is. Is there a way to get this repaired. I know sidewalls really shouldn't be repaired. I have dunlop sp sport maxx 050 on my 4th Gen GS350RWD. Size 235/45R18

They are costly to replace but I wouldn't want risk it.

Get the full set of Michellin and put your Dunlop on craigslist.

You have RWD staggered so just get 2 will be good.

So long as sidewall cords aren't visible, nothing to worry about.... From the pics looks like you're ok
