It looks like you just hit the rim protector on the tire. Seems like its just cosmetic damage.

peel back one of the cuts, if you don't see cords it is probably OK.

I think it will be fine. There are some scuffs, but it doesn't appear to be too deep. If you're still concerned, have a reputable tire shop in your area inspect the damage. You cannot repair something like that on the tire though.
