More Miles from Summer Tires

Looking for a summer tire that offers longer mileage? Most summer tires make the trade-off of a longer life for higher grip. Many customers consider using Ultra High Performance All-Season tires to gain longer wear. The following options are two of the top tires in their performance category:

Bridgestone RE970 AS Pole Position
Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position
Michelin Pilot Sport  AS Plus
Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus

With proper rotation these tires can be expected to see approximately 40,000 miles of use, depending on how aggressively you drive. After all, these would be your sport tires. If you're not willing to sacrifice some dry and wet traction and handling, take a look at these summer tires:  

Bridgestone RE760
Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport
Michelin Pilot Super Sport
Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Potenza RE760 Sport tires are developed for the drivers of sports cars, sporty coupes and performance sedans who want to maximize sport driving pleasure without abandoning treadwear. The tire delivers sharp response and its asymmetric tread design allows for mounting on either side of the vehicle. The Michelin Pilot Super Sport expands the Max Performance Summer tire performance envelope by delivering durability, handling and traction while increasing treadlife. Pilot Super Sport tires come with a 30,000-mile warranty.
