Tire dry rot?

is there a way to treat dry rot? oddly enough my friend has it occuring on the treads of his tires and not the walls. not sure if a repair kit is around for this stuff or if there are precautionary steps you can take to treat it?

No treatment, if it's very bad it's time for new tires

There's no treatment, only prevention... stay out of the sun if possible. You can't fix it either, you need to replace the tire. Nothing worse than blowing a dry rotted tire at high speed...very dangerous.

Dry rot fix

I have had much luck with this product line, Renew Protect (web: renewprotect.com)
This stuff is not silicone.... never use silicone stuff like Armor All etc. Never.
Renew Protect stuff actually penetrates and dry seals. I only have to apply 3-4 time a year. I now get much more life from tires on Jeep and motorcycles.
