Tire life depends on a lot of factors including usage pattern, driving style, road conditions etc. In my case the ES-100 were due for replacement at close to 30k but the Yoko db with similar driving conditions lasted more than 45k. Similarly in Friend's Verna the ES-100 worn out considerably earlier than C-Drive tires.

Guess its the roads i drive in then. NH 17 (AKA National Horror 17 ) is where around 17000 of my 22500 kms would have been done.

ES 100's are known to wear off fast. Aggressive driving style speeds up the wear. Nothing alarming.

Wide range of tire life on team bhp..
20k - 80k kms!

For many of us here there is Need for Speed which is dramatically reducing tire life.
Comparisons are very subjective.

There are a 2-3 turns on the way to my office that i take at about 90-100 kmph everyday. Others regularly smoke them at starts etc.

Think we should mention how we use our tires when we quote how long they have lasted.

My ES 100s are 3k kms old... will be interesting to see how long they last
