I don't know if I'm remembering this correctly or not, but isn't Goodyear, BFG, and Cooper tires all a part of Goodyear now? I remember reading some posts on here about cracks on the sidewalls from all these brands. Quite a few years ago, BFG had an issue with tires with Ford from the factory. The tires were loosing the cap is what I recall. Now with all these brands under one banner, it's possible they all use the same process when making the tires. I hate it about Cooper's; I have a set on my 2011 Sport, and they don't have any cracks, been on the truck for about 3-4 years and still look great.

This would be firestone with ford

I Buy locally from Discount for the truck. If you have an issue they cover it. They have a 30 day satisfaction warranty for any reason.

I bought these tires online in January of 2022 and put them on a brand new truck. No road hazard warranty. At 18K miles today I noticed a crack in a sidewall, and after inspecting all of them, 3 of them are showing cracks in the sidewall. I don't think I have been curbing them, the rims are all untouched, but I suppose anything is possible. I am attaching pictures. Obviously I need new tires, and I don't think I am going to be putting these back on.

I would love to hear your thoughts on what might be going on, as well as what tires I should put on. I do use the truck in saltwater muddy condition (see last pic) while fishing, and I love the grip of these tires, I have been able to pull out of some sketchy launched and have never even needed 4wd.
I have been running the BFG All terrain for over 30 years with no issues. What do you use for air pressure?

I usually run them around 40psi (these are E load rated), but I noticed when I took it to the dealer they lowered it to 32/35
