OE Bridgestone on Santro GLX ran 55,000 kms without change before car was sold. Could carry on for a while I felt.

OE JK Tyres on Esteem ran 50,000 kms and were in need of a change. Sold car before changing tyres.

OE Goodyear on Honda City going strong at 55,000 kms. Estimate will need to change tyres by 60k.

Zen 2003, came with Goodyear GPS2, ran for about 45000k+ without issues and had some life left but decided to retire anyway. Changed to GPS2 tubeless just a couple of weeks ago.

So far so good, a bit bouncy on the expressway on 30psi, with 28 slightly better.

OE MRF - VTS on my UNO for about 65K kms and then changed to MRF-ZVTS.
Doing 65K kms on those tyres was stretched and probably should have been changed around 50/55K kms.

OE Michelins Energy XM1 on my Reva for 30K Kms now and still more to go on those tyres.

thats too much for a jk tyre man, lucky you,

My Bridgestone potenza GIII lasted over 47k kms on my M-800.

Thats the life span of the tyre, i feel you get those ozone cracks what they call if you prolong changing your tyres.

Even though the tyres on my friends opel had lots of tread in them, he had to change them because of the above reason.

Afterall tyres are a major safety equipment on your car.

1st set Mrz Zigma 140 R12 lasted for 20,00 kms mostly highway driving.They had to be changed not due to the mileage they ran but due to the fact they were 7 years old and developed cracks in them

Scorpio GLx 2004 with stock OE Bridgestone Dueler H/T 235 X 75 / R15

Has clocked 65000 Kms and still good for another 10K. I do cross rotation with 4 tyres every 5K and with 5 tyres every 10K for even wear & tear.

My stock MRF tubless tyres for my Ikon 1.6 have crossed 52k kms and still running. Have been told by the service people that I can run for 3-4k kms before I change them.

While your latter statement in bold is true to an extent, I do cross rotation with 4 tyres every 5K and with 5 tyres every 10K for even wear & tear.

I'm currently looking at this size shoes - SuperView of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo
