the stock mickies, while not the stickiest, have at least lasted pretty long. i'm at 32k miles and i will probably need new tires before 35k.

I am at 18,000 on my OEM Michelins, and they seem to be wearing OK. I would guess I will get about 30-35k out of them.

edit:
Well, I am at 30k and still 1/2 the tread is left.

I got about 30k out of them, which was a year and a couple months for me..... They all had to be replaced at once, but at least they all wore evenly.....


then I got 35k-40k out of 2 sets (each) of Yokahama Avid Tourings.....

I got 30k out of the michelins. They weren't bald, but I don't like them to get that bad before changing them.

My stock Michelins MXV4 lasted more than 45K miles. The tires were properly rotated and balanced every 6000-7500 miles, so that could possibly be why they lasted that long.

Edit: These tires were on the car the whole time since I do not need winter tires.

I have I guess the stock Michelin tires and I am still running on them and the car has almost 22,000 miles. Also are people taking in consideration that they dont run there stocker all seasons in the winter, if you happen to live where is snows?

I never had OEM, so I guess I can't vote. When I bought my car the dealer had already put 17" aftermarket rims and tires on it. Although what is on my car now is not the same ones (long story, but they still paid for them). But on my aftermarket setup I have 10,000 so far (2 1/2 years old).

10K for 2 1/2 years? Wow you hardly drive!!
In the last year I have put 60,000 on my company van. I drive more in a year than most people drive in 5 years. My car just never sees any road time, I am either in the company van or our Suburban.

25k miles on Kumho and they were down to the wear indicator, 10k miles on the winter (will go another 10k) and now 5k on the proxes 4. Too early to tell how long they'll last.

I've had my car just under two years now and I've got 11.3k KM on it. The Kumhos it came with lasted until early spring of this year before I replaced them. I thought they sucked. If I was 80 years old and poor, I might have thought they were okay, but for me they were totally inadequate and I'm surprised they lasted as long as they did.

Got rid of the stock tires after a particularly hair-raising hydroplaning incident on the interstate at about 23,000 I have had Continentals on ever since and get about 25K to a set.

I can't really pick any option. I have 40,000ish on the car, but only about 25-30K of those miles are on the OEMers, because I have summer wheels/tires. My OEM tires still look fine though, and I've had fewer problems with them than with my Hankooks (only 1 flat on the Hankook). I expect to get at least 2 more winters out of the OEMs before thinking about replacing them. I run them from Nov 1 - Mar 31.
