Ride or no ride?

These tires, by date, are expired as of now. (7 years)

I have new ones ordered, but they won't be in for a week.

Would you, or wouldn't you?

What's sad, is that I have tires waaaaayyyyyyyy older than this that have sat in the sun over 15 years and don't look like this.

No way with the sidewalls splitting. One good bump and it blows.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

My vote is no also. Your tires are your very small connection to the pavement. When they fail, you fall.

I pretty much do.
Ok, the decision has been made to trailer it the shop for it's new shoes.
