Is it bad to drive a car with cracked tires?

I have a 93' Ford Explorer Sport 2dr 4 wheel drive. Only my back two tires are cracked. The front ones are fine but the back ones are very cracked. The back tires and the front tires are different brands and were gotten at different times. Heres a picture: http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd233/ayame1221/IMG00305-20101002-1740.jpg

Now, here's a good recipe for disaster! Yes, with luck nothing bad will happen, but that's nothing to count on. You have cracked tires, probably under-inflated too, and on the REAR none the less?! Now you go and replace all four tires, before you stop too late for an obstacle or spin on the road! A few criteria for replacing a tire: If any ONE of the following happens, now it's the time to replace your tires: - They have did 78,000 km. - They are not in their natural environment (like snow tires on the dry) - They appear cracked, have "bubbles", are "dry" or polished. - They have less than 3 mm of tread depth - They are over 3 years old. - They are very not grippy and of a cheap and unknown manufacture. When you replace tires, place the good tires...on ALL FOUR wheels! Bad tires in the rear, like in your case, risks you in a spin. Bad tires in the front, risk you in very weak braking in an emergency. There is no room for compromise!

Any tire which is cracked is a potential safety hazard...

If you even think tires are bad to drive on, replace them! New tires can cost up to $ 100.00 each. What is your life worth if they blow out at 50 MPH?

it is ok but the tires are cracked from weather and age, and will most likely not last to long, it is best to get some new tires, I would carry a can of fix a flat and an electric tire pump

looks like the tread is starting its ascent to your inner fender well. I would replace as soon as possible, you can probably manage to get by on the tires for awhile, just keep checking on them and if you notice they get worse, replace them. Eventually the tread will come off and your tire will blow, but just watch them. make sure the pressure is good in them and keep to slower speeds 45~ to milk some miles out of them and also if one decides to blow, you can safely stop.
