I've had many, many, many tires do this. My current set has a split in the rubber right there. Continentals do it worse than any tire I've ever seen. I don't see a structural issue with those Sectors. Now if the split is on the "cap," where the tread meets the sidewall, then there might be a problem. Just remember, a gumwall tire is basically a tire without the extra rubber on the sides, and they do just fine.
