Cracked tire sidewall
The valve stem on one of my wheels got a leak, so I had it replaced. When I got it back, I noticed the tire's side wall looks cracked in several places. This is a very old tire (Goodyear ST), so I'm not sure if it cracked on it's own, or the tire shop did it. It holds air fine, but my question is, is it safe to drive on a tire that has a cracked side wall? It looks mostly cosmetic, but I can't be sure. Does it even matter? Thanks for all replies.

It's just the one tire that is that old. I wasn't sure if this was a "normal" or acceptable problem. It will be replaced. Thanks for the reply.
