I did not experience this when I was using Goodyear tires but I noticed this now with the Michelin tires. It is said that tire ageing is the common cause of car tire sidewall cracking as it is subjected to all sorts of harsh road conditions and weather. Image source: Reddit

Last month – on the month of the CNY – had proved to be a rather very expensive month for me as an owner of a car.
Firstly I accidentally scraped my left back tire against the kerb and caused a small portion of the tire sidewall to be sliced off. I know for a fact that whilst you can abuse the main tread and still drive safely, the same cannot be said for the sidewall. And it was painful because the tire was still new – barely a year since I last changed it. I took it to 2 different tire shops – the first one looked at it and said it was nothing to worry.
