Correct me if I'm wrong, but I've read ozone plays a role. Rubber goods in urban settings don't appear to last as well as they do up away from town i n the Sierra (based on my rubber irrigation boots, and camping fuel bottle gaskets, don't have tire experience). Plastic wrapping, no sun, no bends/c reases help.
