Default Tyre walls

Not sure how, but both tyres on the near side are showing tyre wall damage, and it can't be from me scrubbing them when parking?!

40,000 km on and off road, is this a concern?

2 tyre photos attached - one from the near and one from the offside.

Unfortunately you can not park with out kissing the curb.

Very little risk to the tyre, depending on the depth of the gouges. Try not to take chunks out when you park, but they should last a while yet.. I scrubbed all four walls of my original tyres against rocks, but a quick coat of tyre black brings them back to new in in time

As NTRubicon said not really an issue unless they're deep enough that they've damaged the plies. Mine have similar from a trip to the Cape at about 30000km, they've got 85000 on them now without issue.

I think you will be fine since there's no deep hole or cut on the sidewall.
