Is it safe to drive?

I understand this is not M3 related, but this occurred to one tire that I got for another vehicle. If it is not appropriate here I will take it down.

And I notice there are some cracks inside the tire:




Are these cracks considered a huge hazard? I do not know this tire will be safe on the road or it is fixable?

Other than that the tire is in perfect shape, the cracks are visible from inside only (of course if I could see the cracks inside out I know its a obvious no no)





Thanks in advanced

Old thread, so probably too late for the OP, but for anyone looking at this, definitely do not use a tire like this. The internal damage immediately rules it out.

Thanks! I ended up not using it at all but always good to confirm with the professional
