Icon4 Would You Trust These Tires? Please, Help Needed.

I was just curious about everyones opinion on whether I should trust these tires or not. I've tried other forums, but not much avail on what people would do in my situation, because I'm not really experienced when I come to vehicles. Here's whats going on so far. Ive never had good traction with these tires so I decided to check the tread and when I did I noticed the dryrotting on my tires. These tires were apparently made in 2005, but are not stock to my truck, so they are possibly used but I'm not sure cuz they were on the truck when I bought it. They are Prime Well tires, not very high quality, cheap Chinese tires that run about $60 each. Tread is still good on them. Im simply curious to whether or not you would trust them for use until the spring or if you would replace the tires ASAP. The dryrotting begins at the rim and extends out into the tire about 1-2 inches. Thank you for your time.

I would be inclined to side with caution and replace them. They are 6 years old with lots of tread, which they have been sitting alot. Make sure you get new valve stems too

They are probably fine. Just change the valve stems.

Im leaning towards replacing them, I mean they were $60 to start with and ride rough as all get out, was just wanting to wait until spring when I get new rims lol. But as deep as the cracks looked, I may do it now because that cracking goes completely around the rim and is worse on some tires then that. Just to be on the safe side. But I'm not positive so everyones opinion counts lol

If you are leaning towards replacing them, then replace them. Simple as that.

Replace them, don't go with cheap junk. get some tires from a reputable brand like goodyear or bf goodrich.
