I think I'll get 75000 or maybe up to 80000 miles out of my 17" P265 70 Goodyear ATS tires. How about you?

I'm on schedule to get about 60 or 70k miles out of my current Kuhmo tires on my 93 F150 4x4. I never got more than about 40k out of a set on my 89 Toyota pickup 4x4.

I wouldn't really try to stretch your tires life too long. Tires are nothing to mess with. My father and I have both been in accidents due to old tires.. we replace them earlier now.

Depends on what you consider a good tire.

I got ~55,000 out of my BFG All Terrains, 33x10.50's on a Jeep. I considered them shot, a guy happily paid me $180 for the 4 and thought they were in great condition (about 0.18" tread left if I remember right). I suppose if I ran them to the absolute limit I could have gotten another 20,000+ out of em, but I didn't feel like driving down the freeway, hauling a trailer, in the rain, with questionable tires. It's kinda like guys who don't consider brakes "bad" until it's metal backer plate on disc. I'd rather replace them before it becomes dangerous to drive.

I am at 34k right now on my BFG 285/70/17 AT's and they are getting to the point of needing replacing.

It all depends on the truck and the tires.

On our work duallys (crew cab chevys that run around 12k GVWR/30k GCWR) we get about 15k out of the fronts and about 35k on the rears. Firestone or BFG Commercial AT's. 235/85/16E.

On our play/work SRW crew cab chevys (25-30 GCWR) we get about 40k out of 305/70/16E Nittos.

The SRW trucks turn better, stop better and get way better tire life. BTW, we have 3 of each.

Hope that helps.

On our S-10 (4500 gvwr) we got 92k out of the stock Uniroyals.

Mileage and age are two very different things.....you can operate a tire for many, many miles as long as there is tread left to safely gain traction.

Dry rot is another thing altogether.

I had an Isuzu Rodeo that had Michelin LTX M+S 235-75-15's on it, and there was just over 60k miles on them with still 7/32nd remaining of tread. Tires were rotated and balanced every 6k miles like clockwork.

Well yeah but some people try to get way too many miles out of tires when they clearly do not have tread on them. That is just not smart since tires aren't that expensive and they are the most used item on your vehicle.

4/32nds is the standard "replace" tread depth.

About 40k with BFG AT KO's on a 2000 Tacoma 4x4. They had life left but were crap in the snow so it was time to go. Hoping to get a similar life out of my Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor's, which I prefer to the BFG's.

94k. Stock Goodyears on my 2000 4 runner still had 1/8" even tread. replaced them in 2006 with new Toyos and the Toyos wobbled more than the old Wranglers and they were computer balanced three times... :thinking:

52k with bfg at's on a 2500 suburban

the weight of the truck has ALOT to do with decreasing the milage and I drive ALOT of dirt roads.

The Az heat destroys tires pretty quickly too

My truck - '00 F250 V10 4wd

~20k out of a set of 37" Swamper SSR's
~20k out of a set of 36" PJ Dirt Grips
~25k out of a set of 37" Toyo A/T's (I took 'em off with some tread left, hated the tire)

Currently using 37" Toyo M/T with ~15k on 'em and they still look fairly new. Very happy with the performance (on and off road). Brother in law has same tire (on the same truck) with ~45k on them, still quite a bit of tread left.

Also, I concur with Kyron's statement regarding the AZ heat. I nuked both the SSR's and PJ's while I lived in AZ.

AHHH OK, have u bought tires for a 3/4 ton diesel lately. $1200 isn't easy for alot of folks. Yes I easily have that money but I don't like to throw it out once a year if I don't have to.
Price a load range C vs. an E. My truck will eat a set of 1/2 ton tires in 15k miles. I run the Toyo ATs. theres a $60/tire difference between C and E

35" pro comp all terrains on an F250 superduty, 40k and still going. One of the best tires I've owned so far. Quiet with a great ride and good price.

Same tires on my '03 F-150, at 61,000 miles they have 7/32" left, so I should safely get 75-80k, but I've noticed that the new tires from all manufacturers don't last as long as they used to, especially the Michelins. Mike
