What do yo mean by old and cracking? are they hard and very rough compared to when they were new, if so they are probably beyond repair.

There is only ONE way to solve this problem:

Walk out to the Circular file and drop them in, then buy some NEW ones.

im guessing they cant be repaired. what i meant was that they are getting dry and the sides are starting to crack.

you see im poor and i live with my grandparents because my mother and father died in world war 2. i cant afford to buy new tires. these tires arent even mine. i got them from my friend before he was about to throw them away. actually i got my car from me friend. all i wish to do is have fun. if you guys are moved by what ive said, id like if you guys could donate some money to me so i can but some new tires. help a poor boy out.

stoopidbstrd;

Even if you were 1 MINUTE Old when your Parents died in WW2, you've had over 50 years to get a life (job), so No-ones buying it. Send ME YOUR stuff for evaluation and I'll send you the pieces back when I'm done. Honest, all of them.

mb racer;

Let me have your BEST Motor and I'll RE-Com it for you. I promise it will run like it never has before!! You supply the Penny.

He may not be poor but unlike some of you he porbably doesn't have unlimited funding. you can buy this stuff called tire traction compount in a tin can like what rubber cement comes in. It will make you tires stickey again and help seals some of the cracks.

how could your parents die in world war 2 if you were not alive in world war 2. Your profile says that you're 17.
