Thanks bud

if they are small cracks you might be ok, but I would not travel excessive speeds on them.

well they don't look too bad. I think you can get away with running them. What is the weight rating on those tires though? and the horses you pull is it a bumper pull trailer or gooseneck?

I would still be wary about running them over highway speeds...

If it were my truck i wouldnt use them. There is nothing worse than haveing a blow out or tread seperation. Not to put them down but just remember you get what you pay for. if it was a truck to use around the farm then heck yeah i would use them, but for any highway driving i would look someplace else.
