Tire wear and mileage

So my stock bridgestones on my e92 m3 are pretty much worn oout however I got about 7000 miles out of them at this point. I am just curious as to how many miles people were getting with their tires before needing to have them replaced.

I mean I drive hard but the mileage seems so low compared to what I have heard from others. I was hoping to get around 14000 miles from these tires but they are getting to the point of being out right dangerous.

I currently have 10,000 miles on my michelin ps2, these tires have endured 1 hour on the nurburgring GP track and 17 laps on the nordschleife. The rears have 3mm left and the front 5mm. I am really impressed on the durabilty of these michelins. My next set of tires for my factory 18's will be semi slicks i need more grip on the track.

If I can get 10k miles per set of rear tires I'll be content. Looks like I'll be getting around 8k.

For the folks getting 7-9K, how would you characterize your use of the tires? IOW, are you doing smoky burnouts and Top Gear-like lurid slides with these, or is this your wear with "normal" M3 worthy spirited driving?

All I know is my next tires will be what tire sellers refer to as 'ultra high-performance all-season', which are the highest all-season rating, and the 3rd overall, below 'max performance summer' and 'ultra high-performance summer'. I'll never race or track my car, plus I'll use my car in relatively cold weather (maybe 10 below at the most, but usually no snow), so max performance tires are a compromise I don't need at all, even if cheap, like the Hankook V12s (plus I don't think they offer our rear 19s, at least on Tire Rack).

But the better question is who makes those tires in stock 19" sizes. And if they offer a better/quieter ride and longer tread life, which they should. Good day.
