How many miles did you get out of your tires?

Curious to see how the tires on an M3 hold up. I know everyone drives different so mention if your normal, hard or tracking your car of course.

I had the wheel and tire package with my 335i and it came in handy with the bubbles. Are the bubbles really only an issue with the RFT's or is it common with all tires? The reason why I ask is because before my SIX 335i bubbles I had never had one before this car.

If the tires on the M3 are only going to last 7,500 miles I figure the wheel and tire package might be a waste if the low tread is always going to keep the package from kicking in.

Also, hows the feed back on the rims? Are people saying they are running into many damage issues with the 19's? I live in NY/NJ area so pot holes are EVERYWHERE.

PS - I did

Thanks

If you are a normal driver, the pilot sport cups will easily last you 20k+ miles, I however love to drift, so my tires are 5k miles or less.

I got 8k out of the rear ps2 on my e93 and 12k out of the fronts using it as a daily driver. My track car setup, I get about 1k out of both front and rears with rotation F/R.

20,000 miles? No way. Fronts might last that long but my PS2 rears hit the bars at 10,000 on normal driving. Yes normal driving, maybe one medium slide per month. No smokey burnouts.

I got about 15 out of mine

I just replaced my PS2s, backs were bellow the "wear bars" after 15k miles of daily driving, fronts could have lasted another 3K maybe...I replaced all 4 to cut down on the road noise you get as the tires get worn down.

It's been raining for the past week in southern cali and I almost spun out and crashed in the rain on a mild banking turn traction control saved my . It prompted me to go buy new tires the next morning . In my experience you can drive till the thread is nearly gone if you live in a desert, or southern california from april through october...once it gets wet the "wear bar" indicators are there for a reason. Moral of the experience is, you are gonna have to replace the tires either way and you are only extending the inevitable while jeopardizing your safety.

Rough rule of thumb is 20k out of the fronts and 10k out of the rears for relatively mild driving. I got that with a few track days thrown in.

I'm pretty close to the rear indicator on my rear PS2s. I'm at 13k. My front feel like they can get about 3k more.

Rear tires only got about 7k out of them

Just switched out my Summer tires for Winter set, my rear tires Michelin PS2 were down to 1.5mm after just about 7k miles (one summer April - October). Tire center says they need to be replaced, though I regularly drive the autobahn at speeds of 150 mph, and up to max 170 a couple of times, short bursts, I haven't really done any launches or burn-outs. Is this normal for just high speed driving?

thanks...
