looks like just tread little chunks, small flaps of rubber and small slices.. not deep tho! They all appear to be on the tread and not between them...

Thank you... It just so happened that where I was going was down a dirt rocky road and just that little bit of off roading looks like it did it... I want new tired, but no$$$$ and was going to wait for these to crap out...

Thank you for your feedback

tire question/ stock tire gouge

After driving off smooth pavement I noticed that one of my tires has gouges / chucks on the tread. I have the stock 16 Goodyear tires, just wondering if this is normal when driving off road in rocks and dirt ? Will it hurt the tire if its in the tread, they are not deep but noticable while cleaning the wheel. There is nothing on the side wall and I looked at all the other tires and they look fine. Where the gouges are there is little flaps of rubber... I am sure that this can happen to any tire. Just curious how much abuse the stock tires can take. Any imput would great...
