Today I woke up to find that my 87 Camry parked outside in the freezing cold -7Celcius had a deflated front driver side tire. My current apartment doesn't offer indoor parking so the cars had to put up with being park outside which has caused it to start acting up (which has never happened ever before).

The front driver side tire is completed deflated while the other three seem to be warped to some extent. Its been very cold recently and Southern Ontario got a lot of snow and freezing rain recently. The car was parked outside for 2 days and spent the previous night buried under 2-3 feet of snow.

I need to change my front tire but I'm not sure if the other 3 that are slightly warped are safe to drive with.

What effect does cold weather have on tires. I have a set of old Goodyear winter tires on the car now.

Does the cold cause tires to rupture?

Not sure what you mean by "warped". Cold air will cause tire pressure to reduce but I wouldn't think more than 5 psi or so. If the tires are old and full of cracks then maybe the cold is affecting them. If the tires are still fairly fresh and pliable I can't see -7 C being that big of a deal.
