I said "most" tires fail from the inside, some fail because you hit something, ran over something. The inner liner is what holds air inside the tire. Cracks allow moisture into the cords and belts which support the inner liner, moisture causes rust, rust causes belts and cords to weaken and break, when belts and cords break the inner liner fails, when the inner liner fails you have a loss of air-at an undetermined rate.
Direct sunlight will cause a tire to harden and shrink, causing cracks, unless it is rolling frequently enough to cause the tire body to release the lubricants and emollients mixed into the compound to reduce/prevent degradation from the environment.
