400ac is a short lifespan, but I wouldn't be quick to say bad tires, just tough corn stubble. Strip-till in my area has been murder on tractor tires. Guys have started working at an angle to the old rows instead of driving on top of them and that has helped. You can always tell the tractors that run in strip-till; the tires all pock-marked and sometimes there are cracks along the treads like you mentioned. The front tires on our MX270 are like that. They're Goodyears, by the way. Maybe you can find a tire with a harder compound that can take more of a beating.
