I have these cracks appearing on the sidewalls of all four of my tires, around the entire circumference of each of them. Does this seem normal? these tires are roughly 4 years old and have 23,500 miles on them. Cooper Evolution Tour 225/65R17

Looks normal to me. Depending upon who you ask, tires will age out in 5-8 years even if you haven't worn them out. Go another year or so, then replace.

It's harmless at this point but is the begining of bigger cracks. I wouldn't expect them after just four years.

normal. purely cosmetic at this point. Tires have a service life of 6-10 years.

That looks just like the tires on my 98 mustang. I am going to keep running it. By the way my tires are 12 years old.

Normal to me also... Just changed-out 14 year-old tires on a Garage Queen and they held air... but much larger cracks! No comparison to yours.
