Tyre wall cracking

Hello,

It looks like over the winter months my tyres became slightly deflated when left standing and now there seems to be a crack right round the tyre wall on both sides.

Is this likely to cause problems or will it be fine as its not gone all the way through?

Thank you

    Hard to tell without seeing it in person, really, so it's down to your judgement. Does it look like it might cause problems? If so, replace it, if not, keep riding, but keep an eye on it.

    As above mine has a crack in the tyre wall but I'm keeping an eye on, but I'm going to be replacing my tyres soon anyhow.

    There's a simple way to stop this happening......Use the bike during winter, riding in the snow is great fun
