How many miles on your rear tires

Hi Dondus,

I got 6600 miles on my car and the rears are cooked. WTF. I have the conti sport 3's. Should I be looking at a different tire? Granted i beat it up, but no major burnouts etc. Any advice?

I just have to burn through this next set and then buy 4 new tires, i dont want to mis match. At this pace i may go through 3 sets of rears before 1 front?

seems like a short life to me. i have ps2s and ad08s both with lots of track time and have 24000 miles on the car. the ps2s have 1 or 2 more days in them and the ad08s are 75% or so. i have done some burnouts and skidpad work also.

so you are getting minimum 13k on a set of rears?

My recommendation would be to just buy a whole set once the rears shit the bed. If you don't track the car I'd go with the michelins.
what if i want to track the car? then what? I planned on at least going twice this spring/summer

About 13K on my current rears and tread is under 2/32. Usually just daily driven, no burnouts

PS2s. No burnouts, but with DCT I typically shift at around 4-5K in first. So slight chirp at best.

Should probably have had them switched out already.
