Rotted tires?

I have a set of 31" with about 95% tread. Thing is the tread is cracking, and it looks like the sidewalls may be rotting. How bad is it to use this set of tires on my daily driver? And what would happen if i drive on them at 80?

I wouldn't trust them at all, use them for moving projects around etc, but not at high speeds. Once they heat up from use the WILL explode.

I had a cracked set on a truck that I finally wore out.
They weren't cracked very bad, but quite noticable.
