If you don't change it and something happens you'll kick yourself. You decide you already know what I'd do.
Good point.

Personly i would run that. I have seen our log truck tires tack on more damage and still run the life of the tire. If the tire feels damaged while driving, thats a different story

Personally I wouldn't buy a cup or coffee in Wilcox, AZ. The local cops there are on the side of the local rip off guys too.
I don't know which direction you are headed but I would get it to a big city before I let anybody look at it. Tucson or Phoenix if you're headed west or El Paso if headed east.
What Jim says about opinions applies here too but most everybody in that town is related and there aren't a lot of income producing businesses there.
I've lived in AZ for awhile and have heard real horror stories about Wilcox, and had some experience there myself.

I'm funny about tires. I typically don't run them past about 50% of tread life. Cars especially performance cars need good tires. The fear of a blowout on a MH keeps me honest on those things as well.

Your not that far from Parker, AZ.
If you are headed in the direction of Quartzsite, you could stop at State Tire in Parker.
I have bought tires from there, and they are ok people.
