Tire looks like it has been run flat (or with very low pressure), is old, or both. Personally, I would not take these on the highway or tow with them; but they might last awhile in town at low speeds, if you use your pickup as commuter transportation, or perhaps off road. These would not last on Arizona highways in the summer heat (110+ degrees), where our Interstate speed limit is 75 mph and many drive a little faster. Disaster is only a few minutes and a few miles away.

So when is this..."old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?

Cracks in the sidewall would be enough to send me to the tire store. You can check the date of manufacture to see how old they are—it will be on the sidewall in weeks/year.
