New Tires - Again!


Recommended Posts

My last pair of Bridgestones lasted just over 16k miles... I was surprised because I always drive it like it's stolen.

I think anywhere from 12-15k is to be expected.

If it is worse than that you likely have an alignment issue, or just too aggressive an alignment.

How is the wear pattern on yours? Insides of my rear tires tend to go much quicker than the outsides.

They're all going to peel off after a staggeringly low mile count, but I'm a big fan of Bridgestones. I've done S03 and RE050 Pole Position, both had great wet/dry traction and decent treadwear considering their mixed track/street use. And the cost is MUCH lower than the other OEMs like Bridgestone, Pirelli and even Conti. They come in N-spec on some of the latest 997.2s.

I don't know about Kumho, but a friend had them on his Camaro SS and Z06 vette and loved the performance for the price. Said the treadwear was pretty awful, but it is on all these tires.

I agree. Try the Bridgestone 050 pole position. It's pouring rain at this moment, and I find these tires with AA traction to be great in the rain. inside wear on the rears is expected, its always been that way with p-cars. I keep the 050 on all year because my area generally has no snow conditions in winter. If it snows, rip off the wife's suv...

Most full service tire shops will flip them on the rim for free if you bought your tires from that outfit in the first place. If you keep a regular eye on the inside tire wear, you will likely extend the life of any tire by a significant amount.

Even if you pay $15-20 per tire for remounting / flipping you win.

purchased these Nexen N3000 back in Nov 2007(45000 miles).

Rescently I had all my wheels re-balanced, had the guy check the depth.

Now(61000miles) it is at close to 7/32",,,

I know it is hard to believe, thinking these Nexen's gonna last more than 30,000 miles.

Michelin pilot sport2, non N. I get 27k on the rear consistently. Just got 3rd pair, car now has 112k. mine is an '01, so its the 265x35x18. newer 996 use wider rear tire which i dont know how the PS2 michelin will perform on mileage. the N tire last a lot less.
