I Can’t see any beads anywhere.

In my experience, down at least to -60F (-51C) American-made tires don’t crack. (I’ve also had American-made tires still good, with no cracks, at over 50 years old, while Chinese-made tires usually start cracking by 5 years or so.)

BTW since this site went to some local video format, I can no longer play videos here. Why not just embed from Youtube?
