I ran over a big ole screw on the highway couple days ago, thankfully it was just small enough to still be eligible for patch.
Local shop told me I've got dry rot, and I confirmed visually later the cracks in between my treads. I haven't done a complete inspection yet to see for evidence in the sidewall.
He gave me a "before winter" answer on lifespan, but his tone indicated that as absolute max.
Through google search I've found a range of opinions, but many saying it can be very dangerous to drive on, the tires can split at any time, their efficacy has been compromised, etc.
Thoughts? Also, I've got 225/65 17 on right now, an opinions on widening out to 265/65 17?
Finally, his recommendation were the pirelli scorpion verde all-season plus, and there are lots of good reviews on those. Does anyone have experience with them?
EDIT: Probably should have mentioned: 2014 Cherokee 2.4l AWD latitude
