Cracks in tires

I have noticed a few small cracks like the one pictured below. How concerned should I be about this? Keep an eye on it or replace ASAP?

Thanks Click image for larger version

Replace they are dry rotted you don't want to go down the road and have one blow or get parked somewhere far from home and have one go flat just sitting there. Cracks anywhere are not good, trailer tires usually don't show tread wear unless you do a lot of traveling and may appear fine. Tires are dated .

they just had an article on the tire date and people were saying they just bought the tires but the date was 6 or more years old on the tire .
