I don't doubt that oxidation occurs but the term "dry rot" is usually applied to the more serious issue of rubber degradation that happens as a combination of ozone and hydrocarbons in the air reacting with the rubber making it hard and brittle. Think of an old rubber band, how they will crumble. Now think of your old tires doing the same thing on the highway.
