Now you're making me feel worse! The tire I bought was a Michelin from Costco. Anyone who has bought tires from Costco knows that they 'fill' them with nitrogen, as well!!!

So, in short, I bought an inferior tire that I didn't need for too much $$$ and had them put in nitrogen air (oh no, not the nitrogen debate, now I'm mixing threads!)...I need a breather... I think I'll go huff some oxygen!!

Now, if ya really want age, the old 79 C20 Camper Special Chevy Pickup we had still had Bias tube tires on it from the '80s when we sold it in 2005. Still holding load pressure (We hauled several yards of bark and soil with it each year) with no dry rotting. Two Delta brand tires and two Uniroyals.

I frankly think the quality of what they make our tires out of has gone down over the years. They may be squeezing more miles out of the tread surface, but the overall carcass doesn't seem to be as durable as it once was.
