I've known that the M3's were reputable for eating rear tires but I really thought I'd get at least 5000 miles out of one set. But here I am just over 4000 and they are bald. The wear is even so its not an alignment issue. This is the first set of tires I've put on this car so it may be par for the course but I was expecting a bit more. As for performance, grip in the wet and dry is great, I've pushed the car pretty hard at times but have never found the limit of grip in a corner. These tires are worthless in the snow but they aren't intended for that purpose so no worries. I'd consider buying them again but I'd like to try something new to have some kind of potential for comparison.
