Tire question: hairline cracks sidewall 6-year-old tire

Hi guys,

- I am posting this in different forums, just to see what you have to say.

- Car is 2004 X3 with 85K miles...

- Tires are Goodyear with about 6/32" to 7/32" remaining tread depth.

- The tire man, who has been fixing tires for 30 years, told me city driving only, no highway, which makes sense.

- This is just "normal" hairline cracks seen on sidewall of tires from cars parked outside, exposed to the sun.

- What do you guys think?
