I lied about my tyres

Post by Araf on Thu 6 Aug 2015 - 21:51

Checked my tyres after fitting, and they were made in week 17 (April), so I checked the last ones I had fitted, and they were made in week 35 (August) 2014 - so I probably had the last pair fitted about 6000 miles ago - making an average of 12000 miles for a set of tyres.

I didn't want people kicking their cars, as they can't get 20k from their tyres. Laughing

My Continentals seem to be lasting for ages. How much tread have you got left before you change them?

I have contipremiums on the back of mine with 3.5mm which look like the originals (that would mean they covered 24,000 miles or so, the fronts have been changed to hankooks v12 vensus Evos which are actually pretty good but cost the same as the eq Goodyear.

Contipremiums?  They should be Contisports, shouldn't they?

I usually change between 2 & 3 mm.
