Default Is this tyre damage dangerous?

Is this tyre damage dangerous and/or an MOT failure? I think it's ok because it just seems to be the rim protector thats damaged, but I thought I's ask some opinions..

That's fine.

The rim protector section of a tyre is bigger than you think. I had a big gouge in one of my tyres. I took it to a tyre centre and they just slapped some vulcanizing glue on it and said it'll be fine.

Mind you... you do have GoodYear tyres on...

Quite a good tyre, had them on my Astra Turbo but more middle of the road rather than your premium brand. I'd however put them on my M if I could get the right sizes.

Anyone tried Toyo T1-R, now there is a crap tyre! Went all wobbly and unstable although to be fair I did only have them on the rear.

Anyone have any comments on Ps1's Vs PS2's?

Thanks for the replies.. puts my mind at rest that I'm not about to face a blowout, and that it'll get through the MOT at the end of the year.. assuming i havent worn the back tyres out by then
