    I got 95k out of the Goodyear GT2 on the back of my old Clio. Only replaced because the sidewalls were dozed. Still had loads of tread.

    Back tyres don't do much on a FWD car, and it depends on what sort of driving you do as well.

    I swap tyres rear to front as they wear
    Working out at about 20K miles per tyre; 10K miles on rear then 10K miles on front

    I have also performed a short test leaving one set on the rear, they lasted 20K miles while two sets of front tyres wore out normally
    Sadly those tyres only lasted 1100 miles on the front and were removed due to excessive noise, then sent to Good Year for analysis and reporting
    The report came back yesterday
    "Normal wear characteristic of the vehicle"
