Default Sidewall Damage after ONE day of getting brand new Conti Sports!! :(

Hi

First of all, great community

Changed all 4 tyres of my Audi 2009 A6 (3.2 Quattro) on Saturday (Conti Sports 255/35 ZR 19) . Hit the kerb while moving out of the parking lot and got the damage near the side of the rim on the sidewall. Being blasting myself since!! Can anyone pls tell me if the damage is substantial enough to warrant a change in the tyre or can i still drive with this? There is no vibration or anything else and the car drives fine.

Thanks guys

Honestly I would replace it. It looks like a good bite into the tire itself, not just the rim guard portion. If it has cut into the tire, you're risking a logout from the weakening of the sidewall. My bet is a bubble forms within a month, or less if you hit a pothole or anything like it. Better to be safe.
