Anyone else experience such good wear from their stock summer tires?

Had 20K on mine until I got a nail in the sidewall on one :( . I would say the remaining three in my garage have about 5-10K left in 'em!

I am at 23k on mine and are about 3mm away from the first marks. I auto x all summer on these too. I did have a few big trips also, but they are going strong. I like the Potenzas and I already have a second set waiting in the garage. I also have my Blizzaks LM 25s ready to go on for first snow and my R-Comps just came in yesterday. wo0T... I want this winter to come and go fast.

Let's see... I put my FIFTH set of 070's on when the odometer read somehere around 30K... so I would have to say... NO, I have not experience that kind of mileage on my tires.

come to think of it, I don't know if I've EVER gotten near 20K miles on a sports car!!! I am assuming that you keep your "spirited driving" to a minimum?

I have about 17.5k on the tires so far, and that includes a full day of auto-x school (50+ runs) and a season of runs (25ish runs) and I still have about 50% of the tread left.

I also have 35k miles on the stock pads and I still have about 5mm on the pads.

I guess I'm not driving the car hard enough. :(

I have 24K on mine (just summer driving). I don't do track but I drive pretty aggressively. I was told I have about another 20K left on them from the amount of tread left. Here's one for you. I've got 60K on my car and I still have the original brake pads- it still stops good and I've got a few miles left on them as well.

Great to see the responses. I guess I can look at about 7k more miles to go.

I am looking at some new lighter weight performance tires. Anyone running with the Carbon Fiber reinforced tires yet?

With a 140 UTQG rating, I thought these would wear out well under 20k miles under standard use. I guess its really true about what they say about how the UTQG scale differs between different manufacturers.

i am kinda mad about my tires. i have 9700 miles on my 06 sti and last oil change i had to replace a tire with a nail in it and today i take it in for another oil change, and the same tire has not one, but two nails in it...that means i have had to buy 2 new tires at 320 installed from subaru!! this f-ing car is expensive but its worth it.
what other type of tires would you reccomend?
