I don't think its just the dry rotting factor.
Search around for tire threads or ask Cowlitz, he knows about this stuff a lot more than the rest of us.
I myself am fine with using tires past their date, but not by an extra decade or anything.
Just saying that $1500 or so for tires every 8-10 years isn't the end of the world, but a blowout could be.
