What's your treadwear life?

I have been researching tires and have found a lot of info about likes/dislikes, but not much on treadwear life. Maybe we can start a poll.

Tire brand/model size:
Rotation schedule:
4 or 5 tire rotation:
Inflation PSI:
Current milage:
Remaining treadwear life expectancy:

GY Duratracs 285/70/17
Rotate: approximately every 6K
4 tire rotation
32 psi
13,000 miles
I'm not sure they have worn at all! At this point I would expect to get every bit of 50-60K out of these and still feel comfortable using them off-road.
I love these tires on road and just as much for the trail rides (dirt, sand, mud but no rock) that I do a few times a year.

Tire brand/model size:35x12.5x17 KM2
Rotation schedule: Not enough, probably every 4000-5000miles
4 or 5 tire rotation: 5
Inflation PSI: 36
Current milage: 42,000
Remaining treadwear life expectancy: Exceeded what I consider usable off-road tread life. Probably 15k worth of street tread left.

Not enough data on my current set. But my old 35" Mick Thompson MTZs:

Tire brand/model size:35x12.5x17 Micky Thompson MTZ
Rotation schedule: Maybe every 5000K
4 or 5 tire rotation: 4
Inflation PSI: 35
Milage When Sold: 41,000
Remaining treadwear life expectancy: Great tire, still rolled nice and round. Maybe had 10K more offroad miles and maybe 20K more street miles when I sold them to bump to 37s.

I drive it like I stole it and they have about 75% left. They are pretty chunked and cut up from rocks. I'll probably replace them due to decline in off-road performance before they wear out.

BFG Mud Terrain KM2 - 35/12.50R17
Roughly every 5,000 miles
4 tire rotation
30-32psi
appx 22,000 miles
I'm about 1/2 tread remaining. I expect to change them at about 45k miles, but they will probably last to 50k. I just don't like the lugs to be that shallow.

Are we talking kilometers or miles? That's crazy awesome. Don't know how you did it, but there's no way on earth mine will last 75k miles.

Pretty much the same as Goodys...

Tire brand/model size:35x12.5x17 KM2
Rotation schedule: Maybe every 7ish
4 or 5 tire rotation: started with 5 till I cut the side wall in my spare, now 4
Inflation PSI: Was 35, recently dropped down to 25
Current milage: 41
Remaining treadwear life expectancy: Probably 15-20k left, still usable off road but definitely lowered ability.

Toyo MT 35x12.5r17
Rotated through all 5 every 4,000 miles
28 psi
Current mileage is 65,xxx
Easily got another 15,000+ miles on them
They are starting to chuck more than they use to, but what do you expect with 65,000 miles....

Really? 60K outta the MTRs w/K? I have heard all ends of the spectrum about this tire. Some say they only last 20K, and will never buy them again because of that, and others like you, say they last 45-50, never heard 60K but...I have only had mine on for about 3 months, (apx 1500 miles) so I cant give any input on it. I just consider myself lucky that I was able to find 4 of em brand new in the 35x12.5x17 variety. Or am I?

I got over 100,000 miles on the stock Rubi tires. Yes, I wheeled them in the rocks, but the rest were highway miles. Local driving is hell on tires. Cornering (even from a red light) wears the shoulder off, leaving the middle to carry the load when you go straight.

I bought a lifetime 5 tire rotate/balance deal through the local Goodyear dealer (even though they were BFG tires) and I would get them taken care of every 3-5000 miles or before going on one of my regular 1000 mile weeks. I would also listen to the road noise and get them taken care of as soon as they started sounding different.

By the time I took them off, they still had as much tread as some new car tires, but I really wanted to go to 35s.

It is nice to talk about which tires last and which don't, but how you care for them and how you use them makes just as much of a difference in the life of a tire as the quality.

100,000 on stock tires is outstanding. Perhaps I shouldn't be looking at replacing brand new stock tires just to go to 35's, but....

Has anyone tried Big-O tires? The XT's have a great warranty.
