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.

Anyone else running duratracs? I have the tread lightly discount for goodyear products, however the bfg mt km2's seem to last a good long time.

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.

35" mtrk
never rotated
28psi
10,500 miles
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.
