2 years old+. About 25k miles BFG GForce Summer. A few autocross runs on them, and aggressive driving as you can tell.

I would keep running them for sure. Just keep an eye on them and use them up having fun, but it looks a little like you might be over driving your tires a bit in the corners. Also, summer tires do not like cold, which can also micro-crack them.

That is actually pretty mild autox wear. No big deal.

Lots of tread left, probably 4-5 mm. They are at their best for fun.

OP might want to add more camber if continuing to autox, and if the rules allow it.

I wouldn't replace the tires just for the cracking. If you had other issues with the tires or a single tire in addition to the cracking then yes. There seems to be a decent amount of tread remaining and unless they're wobbling down the highway, run'em!

No offense intended. I just replaced tires with 60K miles on them in better shape than those. I realize you're in CA, I wasn't chancing a NY winter with mine.

In Cali?
Run 'em.
In an Ohio winter or rainy fall or spring, probably not.

I would coat the tires with some Track Claw tire strengthener, perfect time to do it. thumbsup
