Thoughts on new tires cracking?

I bought these Mickey Thompson Sportsman tires online about 4 months ago and had them installed locally. I haven't put many miles (maybe 200) on them since then and there seems to be cracking all the way around the sidewall. Could this be from sitting and weathering during that time? Anything to worry about here? Driver side is in pics and pass. Side is just starting to crack in the same spot. Maybe 1mm deep at most and sidewall has decent thickness there.

When were they made.. You can get that info on the sidewall....
28th week of 2021 according the the date stamp. Also want to note that on the insides there is zero cracking it's only in the outside (I've got black walls facing out and lettering in)

While I don't really know what caused that, it doesn't appear to be critical and likely won't have any long term effects.

However, you might want to call the manufacturer or the retailer and see if they'll do anything.
