Average miles for hankook v12

In march I put Hankook V12s on all 4 wheels and now 7k miles later the rears are almost bald on the inside. The car is on eibach springs but i have had cars way lower than this and tires lasted wayyyy longer. I never do burnouts and such. I need to align it but i have been too lazy so that might be the issue but just want to know what most people are getting out of these tires.

i have between 10-15k on mine and they'll surely last at least that many more miles. I've slid them around here and there but nothing too crazy. Granted i have a 128, 135i's i imagine would wear rears out faster.

It would be worth checking your alignment. 7k miles and toast due to uneven wear says toe is off to me.

Any time you change the height or suspension geometry, you NEED to get an alignment. Toe kills tires, and lowering induces toe.

Yup missed that OP said it hadn't been aligned since lowering with Eibach springs. Definitely get an alignment, that's your problem.
