Was just prepping the car for autocross and found this, what do you think? I pulled at it and it feels like it's just in the outermost layer. Tire has held air well over the last few months during which it's been parked almost the whole time.

Have the other tires held air equally to that one? Is this an autoX car only?

Tires held air equally, car is mostly track. Made it to the track OK.

Oh, that's lovely.  I give it an 8.5 out of 10.

If you can't see any cords, and there is no bulge to indicate that there is damage on the inside, run 'em.

What he said...  And now you have something else to add to your check list.  That tire.

Set your pressures before your runs then check the tire and the pressures immediately after.

On a scale from 1 to DAMNNN that’s about a 4.

Reduced rear tire pressures on the last run, pressures were about the same left to right (this tire is on the right rear). There's no bulge or cords visible. Got 2 more track days to do with the car and then it goes into storage until 2021 so I think I'll just stick with 'em.
