Dry rot can happen when the tires are improperly stored. If you keep the tires in a relatively cool dry place out of the Sun, they should last. According to this web site, stored tires can last 5 years or longer:
SCHWALBE tires can be stored for up to 5 years without problem, but to attain this they should be stored in a cool, dry, and, most importantly, dark place. When stored properly, even longer storage times may be possible.
I don't know why you would characterize your single experience as being the general rule rather than the exception.

Coker is our friend

Coker didn't just make the first 36 tire, they specialize in small runs of obscure tires. Need a front tire for your 1922 Indian motorcycle ? Coker has it. Your Desoto and Studebaker will be shod as finely as your Hudson or Nash.

Even if 24x3 muni tires go the way of the model T, Coker will make a tire if they can sell a few hundred a year.
