Default Torn Tires

I ordered a pair of pink losi taperpins and one of the tires has a small tear in the corner. How bad will this affect the performance of the tires?

I would definatly try to get the store that sold you them to replace it, but a little dab of AKA tire glue and it will be good as new. Just enough to glue the rubber. You do not want the faom glued to the tire or a rock hard ball of glue soaked into the foam.
