    I called Pirelli tire manufacturer directly and they said the tires have only a 12,000-18,000 mileage average tread life. The max is assuming you rotate and balance them.

    They have zero warranty coverage for these tires as well.

    Mine lasted about 7500 miles and they were toast. My first experience with Pirelli, they're ok. They do leave a little to be desired. When she's back on her feet I will give the new Nittos a go round.

    I don't think it's the tires fault alone, the furthest pedal to the right and the tire width are the biggest contributing factors. :D

    I would be amazed if most got more than 12k out of a set....or any set of Y rated tires...compounds are soft and the car is a tire wrecking machine.
