Miles on Original Tires?

Just out of curiousity, how many miles or km's did most of your tires last before they were legally worn out? Has anyone had pre-mature tire wear on the 135?

I just replaced my original Bridgestone RFT's at 28,500 Km. They still had wear left on them, probably another 5,000 Km or so. But I could not stand them any more. Plus one of them had a slow leak, and I had to add air twice per week.

It is like a new car now, much better ride and road feel - better traction and grip in the first week. I can go over regular bumps in the road and manhole covers without getting thunked every time.

I'm at 35,000 Kms but had winter's on for what I would estimate at 12,000 Kms. Getting pretty close to needing rears but my fronts are still as decent as RFT's can be.

Would have tossed them with less than 10k on them, but had to wait an extra 4 months for the crummy vendor to get me my new wheels.

Just shy of 19k. And they were completely worn out...threads showing on one of the front tires. S****y RFTs.

I only got 5k out of mine. The wear rating (140) on them is absolutely horrible because they come with very low tread depths.

29,000 miles and the rears are now at the wear bars. Mine is a daily driver and spends most of the time on the freeway. Just picked up a fresher set for next summer from a fellow 1er. This driving habit does not seem to be the norm on this forum

On a 128 easily driven by PO lady:

rears 26,565 miles
fronts likely would have lasted to 35,000 miles but were changed at about 29,254

I believe tires were Pirelli
