I have 9500 miles on the mich. summer tires and they need to be replaced in another 1000-1500 miles I think. I do run the dragon every wkend hard and I know that eats them up but I wondered how many miles others have on the same summer tires?:coffee:

After 15K miles my OEM Michelin's in the front were at 10% and the rears at 30%. This was after rotating them once.

My second set: Kumho AST with 12K miles the fronts are at 20% and the rear at 50%.
Just bought a new set of tires and wheels for the winter but will put the Kumho's back on in the spring and use the rest of the tires.

Do I have a complaint then? I do run them hard at the dragon but you guys sound like you got a lot more rubber than I do. Would the dealer just tell me to go pound sand or what?

I'd like to know too. My All-Seasons still looked as good as new when I took them off (at about 17k miles) with PLENTY of tread before the wear bar. But I see some people saying they can't get 10k out of them....

People who run the Dragon and those that don't, also a/s tires vs summer tires. I have 9500 and they arn't ready to take off yet but after I run the Dragon again this wkend they will be at or below the wear markers.:vtec:

I've got the Michelin summer tires and I just hit 31K miles. On Saturday, the dealer told me I still have 40% tread left. i think he may be smokin crack, but I am really shocked that the tires have lasted this long. I do a lot of highway driving and keep the psi up, so I think that has a lot to do with it.

It's all in how you drive. I drive like my grandma 99.9% of the time. I get a lot of miles out of my tires.

I can understand that, but a 20k discrepancy? LOL. Meh, I firmly believe you can't get rid of the MXM4's fast ENOUGH. I was dismayed when I saw how much wear was on it when I took them off. Hehehe.

it depends on how you drive and like you said yourself...you romp on your tires. I have 23k on my car, have spun the tires once and drive the car semi-hard daily.

like I said before...it's all how you drive
