    Strictly I think the cracks need to go right down to the fabric/cords but I wouldn't drive on tyres like that in a million years!
    I had light cracks in the groves running around the tyre and one of two between the blocks, the garage guy said it was not a fail because they did not go all the way down, but I switched them out anyway. Remember you are a long time dead!

    I think this would probably pass, but like footprints Id say they were ready for changing.
