My tires are shot after less than 20,000 miles of easy driving. The service center said 15,000 to 20,000 was the expected life.
I do not really want to pay $2,000 for tires every 15,000 miles.
What options do I have to extend life and reduce cost of replacement?
After a little research is seems some of the short life is due to the tires not being able to rotate (the back tires are wider than the front). The high cost per tire is due to the 150 m/h speed rating.
I do not see myself ever driving even 100 m/h. Any thoughts on using "slower" tires?
There is not much difference in size between the front and back. What impact is there in running the same size tires on front and back?
Are there other tires that just last longer?
