    Default Tyre Life

    I have the dreaded noisy Goodyear's NCT boots.

    While washing the car today, I noticed the tread is getting low, probably about another 6 thousand left, 8000 done already.

    So is looks like a possible 14000 miles of life out of the Goodyears

    I don't particularly drive the car hard, but I have fun....

    What sort of life do you guys get out of your fronts? Or is this normal for these tyres??

    Nope, I got 6kish out of my last set of fronts I think. Hoping these goodyears will last a little longer.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Vehicle : Vauxhall

    Trim : very

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : Nosey

    Default

    Backs will last 30-40K but the fronts depends on what I put on...

    Bridgestone : 24K+
    Toyo T1-R : 20K or less
    Yokohama or Toyo track racing tyres : 3-4 months if I drive carefully (no more than 8K)

    The NCT's on the front have done about 11,000 & have maybe another 1,000 left before they get swapped for Michelins
