I have switched brands now
Hate to tell you this, but dry rot doesn't care what brand your tires are.
These are the risks buying used tires. I've done it before, though from a local shop that sells them priced based on tread left, not brand or size. I try to buy new when I can, but when money's tight, you do what you can to keep on the road.
