I got almost 7K out of them..... my dealer like to inflate them to almost 50psi.... and still does. I learned to check after each visit after the first set of tires.

Re: (big2mo)

When you are ready to sell your car, call me. I know it has never been run hard, never cornered, and never accelerated hard. I've been averaging 10,000 miles per set of tires, no matter what they are. But I am lucky to live in the Sierras where the corners are often and the pavement is terrific. oclv

i got about 32,000 miles on mine, including several laps at the Nürburgring. (Well I run a set of snowsports in the winter so not 32,000 miles total on the summers, but still pretty good). They are Smooth Bald right now, but car is in storage until I return from Aghanistan, then time for the snowsports again, then F1s on order for next spring

I replaced mine at around 24K miles because they were so freakin loud on the road. But I haven't heard many people going beyond 30K.

Re: (Heimpel)

Heimpel... nice looking S60! The R cannot consistantly chirp the tires unless it is being abused, so if you have AWD, your wear should be nearly the same as an R, and if you are FWD, you would probably run through them a little quicker.<p>Velvet... 10th MTN?? I only ask because a LOT of my old army buddies are there now.
