    You get what you pay for really
    I would expect them to last about 5K miles on the front, maybe up to 12K miles if you fit them new to the rear and swap to the front when the fronts wear out

    Ask them for details of the treadwear / traction / temperature ratings, and compare that to what you currently have fitted

    they do not look to bad see http://www.sumofirenza.com/passenger.htm
    with treadwear rating of 360 which is at the higher end for performance tyres.


    Treadwear definition:

    Treadwear grades typically range from 60 to over 500, in twenty point increments. To receive a treadwear grade, a tyre is tested under controlled conditions on a government prescribed test course which does not necessarily simulate the actual application for which a given tyre is designed to perform. As a result of these test parameters, there is no accurate way to assign miles of wear to treadwear grade points.

    Upon completion of the 7,200 mile test, the rating results of both tests are compared, and the tyres being tested are assigned a treadwear rating by the tyre manufacturer. A tyre with a treadwear grade of 400 might be expected to last twice as long as a tyre that has a grade of 200 if given the same usage and driving style.
