Tire leaking problem

Tire went flat on me. It looks like it has been dry rotted. Went to air it up and air is coming out of the tread on the sides. Is my tire done?

It is a 31" duratrac that is close to new.

Yep, one of my trailer tires did the same thing. There was no saving it even though there was plenty of tread left.

Take it back to where you bought it, maybe they'll do something for you. A new tire shouldn't dry rot.

You can always put a tube in it. That's what I did to a tire with a cracked in the sidewall edge and use it as my spare.
