I had 69K on my OEM's when I replaced them. I do switch to a set of winter wheels when its cold enough to snow though. And I had converted them to drag slicks by the time they came off. However, the best deal I found was on BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2. At the time they were the best price. Seemed to hold up well and were rated much higher than the OEMs.

I didn't buy my Camaro for the purpose of burning the tires off it. I bought it because I love the lines and have wanted a Camaro since 1967. There are plenty of times when I let the horses roar... it just (usually) doesn't involve spinning the tires. "Grandma" would fill her Depends if she drove like I do.

Pirelli's are Crap

I have 30,000 miles on the Pirelli tires and they are wearing in the center like there is too much air pressure in them. Since I am not the first owner (I bought my SS2 with 19,000 miles on it), Pirelli won't replace them. I am putting Hankook Ventus ST's on the back and Ventus V12 on the front. The reviews look great for these tires.

I got close to 40K out of my stock Pirellis. I have since switched over to Mickey Thompson Street Comps. I love these tires. Perform much much better in the rain.

I do not care at all for the performance of the Pirelli's, not enough grab.

On my G8, I really liked the Goodyear Eagles performance. Life was decent for a performance tire.

Well, I only have 8300 miles on my Pirellis but they still look brand new - and I don't "grandma drive" (but I don't spin 'em very often either). I hope to get 30K out of them but I will probably go with Nittos or Hankooks come replacement time.

I have Pirelli tires on my other car too and great service from them. I have 35k on my stock Pirelli tires now and not bald yet, no cupping either. When they get close though, I will be burning them down fast. I might check the Nitto Motivo next - seems like there were several good recommendations on them.
