Tire Wear @ 24k

Postby kimbill » Wed Jul 19, 2017 10:19 am

Shouldn’t I expect more than 24,000mi from a set of Michelin Pilot Super Sports? They’re evenly worn across the tires down to the wear bars, pressure always 31psi or more, rotated every 5k!, a lot of highway miles and no drag racing. Hrell, I’m 83 years old, so hot-rodding is long gone…… The original Dunlops lasted 55k……So, do they recommend replacing when down to the bars? Sure looks like many miles left.

Yes Bill, you should have gotten better mileage out of those tires. I got 42k on mine and replaced them with 4/32 still on them
Have you visited the tire dealer?
I only purchase my tires at my local Infiniti dealer and I'm sure if my tires wore out that quickly they would give me a concession on the purchase of new tires.
