Perishing cracks in UST tyres

Hey guys,

 

My girlfriends Maxxis Monorail UST tyre has fine hairline cracks running lengthways down the tyre. They appear to be caused by perishing- they don't look like they are cuts or anything like that. There is no loss of air or leaking of sealant. I also suspect it has been this way for a while.

 

The tread is still got quite a lot on it, I would say 50% at least, and it would be nice to keep them running for a while longer.

 

So are these cracks confined to the outer layer? ( would assume so because there is no leaking yet)

Is this going to suddenly and catastrophically explode?

Or is it safe to keep riding?

 

I know Maxxis have a rep for being robust, but I don't know if this is serious or not.

 

Thanks for the help.
