If this isn't exceptional, I don't know what else is! 1,40,000km on ANY set of tyres is a matter for the record books. Please post a few pictures of the tyres.

And, notwithstanding your confidence in their strength, please do think of retiring them soon . They are past their prime both physically and chronologically.

I do mixed of city and highway drives. Stock JK Tyre on the swift ldi did roughly 60k. The treads were still good but one Tyre lost shape (twisted a bit) else would last another 10k. Bad behavior during hard brakes made me upgrade to Bridgestone AR 20. Ride has improved and so is the breaking confidence. Almost 60k on this one too and should go another 10 easily.

It is exceptionally unwise. You are well out of the safe life of your tyres both by mileage and age (tyres tend to crack after 4 years of use). If you value your life and that of your co-passengers/others sharing the road, please change your tyres today.

Bridgestone. I believe the subsequent models did not come with Bridgestone as stock tyres and came with JK or the like.

Yes, that's correct. My bad.

I feel there is still some life left in the tyres.
I guess that should be the highest mileage clocked by a set of tyres on this thread.
As others said, it is definitely not normal. Normal tread life is around 40-60K kms for most users. It would be great if you could post pics of the tyres.

Tyres - Yokohama C Drive
Lasted for - 55,000 kms
Number of years - 3.5 years

The C Drives were excellent tyres. They struck the sweet spot between longevity, comfort and grip, especially wet grip.
The grip was very good until 40,000 kms beyond which the tyres started to show its age. During the last 5,000 kms, the tyres didnt have much grip in dry but wet grip was still very good. Pity they do not make them anymore. Would have loved to swap on another set of C Drives if they were available. Shifted to Conti Comfort Contact 5

Tyre life on my Linea to date.

1. Goodyear Eagle NCT 5 - 18K kms (would have run another 2K kms)
2. Hankook Ventus Evo - 27K kms (ruined the remaining life on a go kart track)
3. Continental MC5 - 32K kms (good for another 12-15K kms)

Well I may find it difficult to explain the difference between the ER60 and the T001 because they were of different size. The ER60 were bigger hence had more cushioning effect which was lost once I switched to standard factory size. I have driven the T001 for around 9.2k kms and can say the below.

1. They are fairly silent. I can now here the engine note clearly as the ER60 would drown the engine sound while they rolled.
2. Wet grip is good though I have not pushed the car in the rainy season I did not find the tires causing any issue.
3.I have noticed the T001 to kick in the ABS more often than the ER60 did. I believe since the ER60 were larger they stopped quicker.
4.They don't look as fancy as the ER60.

In almost 7 months that I have used the T001 they have punctured once due to a big nail but the tire held its ground well. All in all touch wood I am satisfied with the purchase.

I have Bridgestone Duelers which came as stock tyres on My Safari.
Its been 5 years and I have done 105000 kms till date. Have religiously followed balancing/alignment and have rotated all 5 tyres.
There's still some life left in them but I am planning on changing them in a couple of months and going in for Duelers again.

Thanks,
Ajit
