    I know performance tires do not offer any type of warranty besides defect, But how many miles are you getting out of your tires? Let me know what type of tires you are running, how you are using them, and how the treadwear is.

    Thanks:D

    I had a set of Z rated tires that lasted me about 20,000 miles or so. The current set that I have, miraculously, still have a LOT of tread and are still alive and kicking.

    What type of tires are you running now? 20K seems ok for performance tires as well.

    I pulled 35k out of my S-03s on the Civic... 30k on Dunlop SP8000s.

    This is kind of a vague question, since there are a lot of different scenarios to consider here. Are you talking like summer tires used on a daily driver? Are you talking serious z-rated tires used for actual racing? Be more specific on what you want to know...

    Exocet Wynstar? Wow! That's the first time that I've looked at the brand of tires I have. haha! My last set were Suhmitomo...or however it is you spell it. These current tires have kicked ass. I never question my tire guy whenever he gets me a set as I have NEVER had a problem with any tire he has gotten me in the past ten years.

    I had a set of Nittos that I rotated every 5k and got 50k out of them, another set I rotated every 2500 and got 70k.

    My Toyo R888 have almost 1k and they are at 50% worn.
