Factory tires should have road hazard warranty on them. I would check on that first. Should be a pamphlet in your glove box.
Only if he bought the protection otherwise he's out of gas

You're all correct, of course. After mulling it over I remembered hitting something hard a while back--don't recall if it was the RF, but obviously it was--so a new tire is in order.

Thanks all for bringing me to my senses; with the suspension upgrade I'm ready to push it a little more.

Edit: Fortunately, the wheel wasn't damaged. The black stuff wiped off easily; it appeared to have been rubbed-off the sidewall. Looks like I hit it as hard as I could without damaging the rim (still trying to remember how/when I hit it).

Good, I'm glad you came to this conclusion. I understand the frustration of this kind of thing and how easy it can be to write it off and think it's ok, or think there is a manufacturing defect and just be mad about it (I'm not hating, I have been there myself more times than I care to have been there). You, your mustang, and all of your fellow drivers around you, will all be better off.

Funny thing is, I don't know why I even thought for a second that that I could get away with not replacing the tire (I'll probably do both fronts to keep them even). I've always been super careful about things that can kill you (tires, brakes, steering, suspension, etc.). Old age-induced brain fart maybe, or maybe because the car's still pretty new and I didn't expect any repairs for a while.
