If you use Armorall, be very, very sure you don't get any on the tread. Armorall is fine-for what it is-but it makes rubber & plastic surfaces extremely slippery. If you use it on the tread, you might as well try riding on ice.

If your tread is outlasting your sidewalls, you're not riding enough. Even in bone-dry Colorado, I haven't ever had a sidewall dry out and start to crack before I wore the tire out. I've left tires sitting around the garage for a few years after they've been retired and had them start to crack, but that's not exactly connected to real-world use. Just ride your damn bike!

alright guys,got the message,my bike tires aren't dry and

cracked, you're right if they are then they should be replaced, but they do get scrape marks from gravel and get dirty so that is what I was looking to cure, my kids bikes do get dry and cracked looking though....
