Mike Schwab replied to Renee Patten's discussion Can I/Should I ride on splitting/ripping tires?
"Cracks in the rubber are meaningless on the sidewall or the tread.  The cords are the main thing holding in tire pressure.  If you are worn down to the tread or the tire is bulging then you need to replace the tire."
