Some one tried to slash my tire

Last weekend I brought my truck into work to clean it up a bit. While checking my tire pressure I noticed a line on my front driverside tire. Thinking its just dirty or something I go to wipe it and realize that its a cut...

It was only one tire but still. I paid $440 a piece for these tires here in Canada, they aren't cheap. Worst part is warranty wont cover it because it's vandalism
This is a flat screw driver bit, the tip is completely in there.

I can say the sidewall isn't as thin as everyone thinks, soft yes but not thin.

I have a good guess but I can't go pointing fingers... Made a police report and they are "looking in to it" but I know they wont do anything.

Sorry to learn of the vandalism. Do you have insurance which would pay for a replacement?

In the USA, some auto insurance policies with "comprehensive" coverage would fully cover the cost of replacing the tire due to vandalism.

Yeah my insurance will cover it. Still, having to pay $200 for a new tire sucks when these ones are pretty much brand new

Take some quality cyanoacrylate glue for r/c airplanes etc and glue that back together.
They also sell a accelerant for the glue that you want to use.

First clean it with some acetone all the way to the bottom of cut.
Then get glue in to the entire area.
Spray accelerator on it.
Hold it down tight and it will flash and vulcanise the rubber.

I have done this several times on the tread. It will melt the rubber back together. I had some bad cuts on some 36" Fun Country tires and they never pulled open.

It Works!!!
