If tires are dryrotted but keeping pressure, is it safe to drive long distances?

Question by xxxnascar17xxx: If tires are dryrotted but keeping pressure, is it safe to drive long distances?
My boyfriend’s Jeep has dryrotted tires on it. From what a friend of mine told me. But, the tires are keeping the tire pressure. Would it be safe to travel long distances with the tires the way they are?

  • wanna know:

    I would say no they can come apart at anytime,any second.Dry rot means they have weather cracks in them and they can come apart or blow out easier than good tires.

  • Zane:

    NO NO NO! Tires heat up as they run, as much as 80 degrees. A truck tire cant be retreaded after it is 5 years old, that is the reason. Even a tire 5 years old with 100% tread risks failure. Front tire blowouts can be deadly! A tire is one of the most important items on a vehicle, never take a chance. I is other’s life and property at risk as well as yours!
    Drive safely!

  • ADY2CV:

    NO IT IS VERY DANGEROUS.ESPECIALLY ON LONG DISTANCES BECAUSE THE TY RES GET WARM AND THE PRESSURE INCREASES CAUSING A BLOW OUT SO GET THEM CHANGED AT ONCE…..

  • kelly_f_1999:

    well no…..they could blowout at any time…. even if they was new so dry rot is always bad wouldnt be safe to drive a mile…. they only will hold air til they pop…. you ever seen nascar what what happen when they blow a tire… they bounce off the wall and wreck…. he will do the same…..when they pop also… but he wont have many walls to save him it will be another car or a tree

  • chevvyl:

    NO NO NO.

  • logicalgal:

    I would buy new tires…………….safety is an issue here and he could lose control if he blew a tire at a higher speed.

  • kenbgray:

    No its not safe at all. The side walls of the tire could blow out with just a bump in the road.

  • Big O Tires on Havana:

    Dry rotted tires (I am assuming you are seeing tiny cracks) should be inspected by a professional technician. All rubber cracks as it dries out but assuming the tires are reaching 5 years of age…. you should probably prepare to replace them.
