BF Goodrich Mud Terrain Sidewall Crack

I have 26,000 miles on this tire, passenger front has a sidewall crack. Sam's Club will not cover it since it's not leaking air under their road hazard warranty, but BF Goodrich says take to other BFG dealer and to give them a call for warranty replacement.

In worst case situation, I might keep this as a spare tire, as since the spare is 10+ years old. I would hate to replace just one tire vice two to keep same thread size at front or rear. Comment would be appreciated.

That's not a crack, it's a cut. If BFG is willing to replace it, I'd take that free replacement, buy 1 more new one, put both of those on the rear and use the other (not-cut) as your spare. BFG will keep the cut one.

I agree take a new one if you can get it free or real real cheap. BFG cut easy on the rocks that I know. Still run them on everything I own with the exception of my Rock Crawler and my Rally car (if they made a set small enough the Rally race car would have them too).

On the flip side though I have a Swamper on the front of mine with a hole the size of your wrist that on the trail I used an entire tire plug set (maybe two) to fix...that was years ago and it is still on the Jeep. My spare has never hit the ground. Getting ready to buy a new one and put the spare and the new one on the back and the best other two on the front and have two spares if needed.

One thing I'll note is that that tire looks like its old even if it has only 26000 on it. The dry cracking is what my wifes 6 year old 65K mile goodyears looked like before I replaced them. Delaminating at the tread blocks. I sold a set of Toyo MTs at 5years old 27K and they didnt look anything like this one. If this is plus 5 years old and sits out in the elements all the time, you may have issues spring up with the rest. Rubber gets hard and brittle between 5-10 years depending on exposure. Once its gets there... it doesnt really matter the tread life remaining. Needs replaced.

Tire manufacture date is 4115, around October 2015, purchased May 2016. Ran Moab twice with it, White Rim trail, 7-mile Rim, Top of the World, Hell's Revenge, Fins & Things. The worn thread look may be a result of running 18 PSI air down over 200 miles.

Thanks for all the comments, feedbacks.

Will post the result after visiting a BFG dealer. Pep Boys never got back to me.

It might be.... but my tires are 2 years old installed. 3 years old manufacturer. 9000 miles of which half that or more is offroad at 5-10psi. Place we go has combined trail/blacktop and These run black top at 5-10 psi up to 40mph probably 500 miles. They have rock scratches and they arent perfect.... but they arent dry cracking like that.

Yeah, your tire doesn't look dry at all.
