This may be a bad pic but I'm asking the more experienced folks to look at the photo and tell me if I should be concerned with the missing piece of tire.

Thanks

Michelin XRV 22.5?

Looks like you hit something or curbed the tire.

From the outside it looks fine, by the picture, but you should have the tire removed from the rim and inspected internally. A tire tech can look for bruising or a broken inner linner.

That is the only way to tell if any damage was done by the possible impact to the tire.

If I was going to leave that tire on, I'd place it in the wheel position where it would cause the LEAST damage if it blows.

Thanks all.

I will have it inspected and swap with my never used spare.

Since you have a spare, I would switch tires. In as much as you have a 2003 coach, my guess is that your tires are getting too old(5-6 years) to be safe. Might think about all new tires.
