The turbo and boot is from the oil that is put back into the intake thru the Crank Case Ventalation (CCV) to the air filter tubing. This oily mist eventually puddles up in the IC system and the oil soaks into the boots causing them to get weak and seep oil until the fail (blowout,rip).
It's best to remove the boot, clean all surfaces really good with a degreaser and replace with a new boot. You can also do a search on "CCV MOD" to eliminate the oily mist from entering the air cleaner tube either by filtering the oil mist or plumbing it out to the atmosphere.
Sorry can't help you on the tire issue. Looks like dry rot, need to be replaced.
