Is this tire dangerous at this point on this 2011 Prius? I see this crack in it and it seems to have dropped PSI from 37 to 31 in a month while the other tires held 37 PSI. Not sure if it’s the crack or something else causing the pressure drop. Its the front tire.

I also attached a photo with the date code. Not sure how to read it. Does this code say these tires are from 2016?

thank you.

Which tires wold you recommend for a 2011 Prius? The back two tires are maybe 4 years and 20k miles old but are of two different brands. Should I replace all 4 tires?
All 4 is not a bad idea. Get any of the known name brands (Goodyear, Michelin, Bridgestone, Continental etc.), you should be much safer than what you have now. I have an '10 corolla, with tire size similar to yours 195/65R15. I am currently on General Altimax RT43 tires. I think Continental owns General now.
