Around when did you change your tires?

Just trying to see what the life of these tires are like...

What's your driving style? Did you do any burnouts [smokey ones]? How many miles?

Thanks.

I just got my car, and I don't do burnouts. I am a daily driver so I can't tell you yet when to change em.

For me 11k on the SS and tires have around 70% left and the 8k on the LT and look like new. Both cars are driven hard but wheel spin is avoided.

I don't do many burn outs. Only been to the strip once and only did 4 passes. I'm almost to 40K and my rears are getting close. Fromts are probably good for another 10K. That is 80% highway miles.

Mine lasted about 20k miles.

I did some drag racing with them, but didn't do burnouts in the box. Just from the line sometimes unintentionally.

35 000 KMs.... aggressive driving but only did one small burnout. Mostly highway driving...

The front tires, you can still see a tread pattern but are pretty much bonfire material as well..Name:  IPhone 072.jpg
