    Vehicle : Insignia

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : 2.0

    Year : 2011

    Default How many miles do you get on tyres ?

    Just had to replace a set of Maxxis MA551 tyres, got 21,000 miles out of them , is that good for a budget set of tyres , they cost £66 a piece 2 years ago , replaced with the same tyres although they have gone up to £72 (215/55/16 97V)

    What sort of mileage are you folks getting and what brand.

    my michelins on the rear were 5 years old tyres (from date code) and starting to split after 48000 miles, making them the original tyres on the car i'd guess! The tyre centre bloke was impressed with the level of tread still on them, and estimated had they not started to split they'd of done another 25000 easily!

    Lol the way I drive, I have never ever worried about the mileage I get with tyres, because it usually isn't very much, never actually noticed how much I've got from a single set.
