Tires? Is this the right place?

The bus I bought has one tire that is in question. I'm told its from sun exposure. Is this thing ready to fail? I drove it 100 miles home without incident. I'm not going to hold anyone responsible for their answers, just wondering if its a big deal. There is no change in the shape of the tire. Thanks for any suggestions.

Yeah "ready to fail" seems like an understatement.

definitely needs replaced...

regardless of the opinions of others.. the rulke given to me was DOT would fail any tire where the belts can be seen... those cracks are big enough that you would surely see a belt or close to it... definite replace-now category.
