Unhappy Does anyone know anything about tires/dry rot?

Potenza 245/45/18

I bought some tires from ebay. two are sweet, two appear to have cracking in the tires. They look dried out. Came from Las Vegas as I understand.

I would love to send some pics to one of you guys to get another opinion. Emails please???

Concerned for safety, may want my cash back...

Cracks in tires is definitely bad. Do not use them.

It means it's time to toss the tires.
