How are your tires holding up?

Well, I'm almost at 3k miles and I looked at my tires last night, and I'm pleasently surprised to see that there really isn't any tread wear just yet.
Now I know that there some of you that like to get on it and do a few burn outs, but I'm talking about is just normal everyday driving.

I saw that some people were saying that the tread life was only going to be around 6 to 10k miles before you need to replace them.

What do you guys think? Just normal driving, no racing applications or burn outs, what do you think will be the average tread life on our tires?

Any updates on how well the stock ZL1 tires are wearing? Anyone out there with the original tires with more than 10,000?

I'm at 7800 miles and they seem to be good so far. Done some AutoX and drag racing on them too.

I've had mine for 3 years now. It's a daily driver and I'm pushing 60,000 miles on the original Pirelli's. I'm about to replace them next week.

Since you like to road race, what are you going to use to replace them, or are you going with the Goodyears again? I was thinking about the NT05's, know anything about those. I am looking for something a little better for the road course, not to concerned about drag racing.

WOW ... That's incredible for a set of Pirelli's, I'm looking to replace mine with only 20K on them. FYI this thread was about the ZL1 and not the SS though.

So you got 13K miles out of them. Would you say even wear? Would they still pass a state inspection?

There are no inspections in Florida, which isn't all that good for getting the junkers off the road.

Florida has entirely different inspection laws than us here in PA. Friends of mine have told me Florida inspection is pretty easy. We need 2/32 here in PA, which is just about bald. I think PA is one of the harder states overall for inspection.

Good to hear they're holding up well.

I picked up a <1000 mile used set off what I believe is a Zl1 (305/30/zr20s) for my GT500 for 125$.

I just changed my rear tires this past Friday. I had just under 35K with them and they still had some tread, but I saved some money and wanted to get them changed out before the weather changed. I think I could have gone another 3-4K. Front ones have maybe another 20K.
