Is a ripped tire bead safe. Pic inside

Tire with a rip/ bead snag. Is this tire still good?

Good to know. Didn't like the looks of it either. It might actually be safe but I don't think I wanna be the one to find out.

I'd probably opt for a new tire. That one could leak air because of the ripped bead.
