Why are bald tires dangerous?

Bald tires are not particularly dangerous when the road is dry. In fact, slicks (treadless tires) are used in racing because they provide greater contact with the dry road. The danger comes from hydroplaning on wet roads. Without tread grooves to channel water out from between the rubber and the road the tire has no traction and your car spins out of control.

What is a cheater stick?

A cheater slick was a tire that was a cross between a treadless (slick) soft rubber wide tire used in drag racing... and a standard street tire that had treads. Cheater slicks had token treads in them to get around the rules against using slicks and thus were "cheating." Cheater slicks were simply very close to all-out racing slicks with a token tread and sidewall that looked more like typical street tires, but were usually wider than street tires. These were popular in the 1960s.
