I bought these tires expecting more out of them. the handling and performance are great but they just didnt last. After 10000 i have balding tires and have been putting off buying a new pair. If the treadlife were better i would consider buying them again as they are a fairly cheap set of tires but if you only get 10000 miles out of them then its not really a cheap tire huh? I do a lot of spirited driving, occasionally i will drift around a little or burn a little rubber at a stop sign or redlight. I wouldnt say enough so that they would wear this quick. I would expect 25-30k.
