    I would love to hear how many miles were put on your first set of tires before you realized they were bald, or at least needed to be replaced.

    The dealership where I bought my car told me the guy who bought the HC Challenger they had before mine, had come back to put another set of tires on his car at 1200 miles.

    Just curious.

    Wow! Did you rip through the first set intentionally by racing or doing constant burnouts?

    Lowest I have read elsewhere was 600 miles.

    I have only driven my HC 80 miles (one day) and only have broke the tires loose at about 40 or 45 a couple times. Weather here in NY has not allowed me the pleasure to do a John Force style burn out yet.

    Excellent to hear you enjoyed those tires!!

    Life is short, drive what makes you happy!

    I've been really trying to behave. I have 2,780 miles and the rears are about 30% remaining. I MIGHT make it to 3,500 miles. Probably not.

    Does it really matter there about done
    I'd say another good burnout
    He will have to replace
    If he wants to play safe

    They are close enough that in thinking about rotating, but, I think a new set would be the smartest route.

    Maybe I can get them under the 13k/12month bumper to bumper warrenty?

    Sure! Just tell them the tires are between the bumpers, aren't they?
