Tire crack? along sidewall. (weathering?)

inspected my tires and found one that had this very thin crack that doesnt look like it goes very deep either ...it runs almost the entire circumference of the tire.. maybe about 3/4 around. should i replace it asap? i've driven on it for over a week now on highway.





found this very very very small amount of wrinkling? cracking? on another one as well.

You need not worry about the tire age, that's what the spare tire is for.
