Thank you, I know what dry rot looks like as well. I'll reiterate: visible dry rot (what you see on the outside of the tire) is not the only thing that will determine whether or not a tire is rotting-they rot from the inside as well.

Believe me, I've had it happen several times now with my father's MG, which is also garage kept and does about 2-3,000 miles a year. The tires it came with started going bad a few years ago, even though they looked fine on the outside-they were all dry rotting along the beads, and they were all about eight years old at that point.
