I don't know what you're seeing, but small "cracks" (or even small missing chunks of rubber) in your tread area is not a cause for concern. The tire tread is subject to many insults, including running over glass, stones, metal shards, and whatever flotsam and jetsam is found on roadways during your travels. Pictures?

How old are the tires ? If they are more than 5 years old then cracks show up b/c rubber is drying out due to exposure to sunlight.

I don't think very small, shallow cracks between the treads are a concern.
It just means the outer rubber is drying out.

If the tires are older than 6 years and cracking or if the cracks between treads are wide or deep then bring the tire to the tire shop or an inspection.

When the rubber is too dry, cracks will develop and the reliability of the tires are questionable.
