Crack in stock tire

I was wondering if anyone else has had a problem with their stock tire (Goodyear Fortera HL P245 65R17) cracking? My wife just told me over the weekend that the tire pressure indicator light came on the dash last week. I went to go fill the tires and noticed that on the rear driver-side tire, there are 3 or 4, 1-2" cracks along the bead. To say the least, I'm looking for a replacement pair. But, I just was curious if this happened to others as well.

Depends, how many miles have been driven on them? How old in 'years' has it been used? Possibly dry-rotting, but also 'curb checks' as well....my assumption, since we don't have any pics to voice our thoughts.

Thanks for the reply. The vehicle has 59K on it, and we bought it when at 18K. I'm sure that there have been some curb checks, but it's on the driver side and we don't tend to do much cross parking. I'll try to get a picture tonight if the sun is still out when I get home.

59k on those stock tires there probably worn out and need to be replaced.

Not at all unusual to see cracking at that area along the bead.
I agree with the others though.....at 59......heck, just call it 60,000 miles, the tires have done well and paid their dues.
