oversize tire question

im new to oversize tires. the truck i bought has 37x13.50 toyo open countries on it and they're practically new. today i noticed a slice/split across the trad pattern. it goes through one of the lugs and between the tread. I'm wondering what caused this. Are bigger tires known to split like that? or does anyone have any insight as to what may have caused this

does it go all the way across? It could be the seam where the the tread comes together

could just be a cut or maybe dry rot, check the date code on the side.

i had that happen on my last set of tires they were 15in wide tires on a 9 in rim according to the tire shop thats what caused it and wouldnt replace it, well now my new set of toyos is starting to do this again, but they are on the proper sized rim so they will be hearing from me if this continues to get worse.

if its just in the lugs i wouldnt be to worried about it but as soon as it goes into the main part of the tire you got a major problem. so keep an eye on it. mine went within 1000mi
