Are these cracks normal or indicative of something worse?

This wheel has zero movement or deflection when I handle it. Thanks.

64 Impala. It was in my driver '57 when I got it. Solid as can be. I just wonder if it is cosmetic or structural.

I'm getting rid of the wheel and am curious if it's bad or normal. It's in beautiful condition otherwise.

The cracks are cosmetic. There is a steel core inside the rubber like material that often cracks from years of flexing and expansion and contraction.

I have a 60 Impala wheel on my 56 that looked worse than that when I bought it... Sent it to a guy in Ohio and he put the fix on it... Later, Dave
