    Re Tire Wear

    I am referrring to all of the tires in general. Also I am a pretty light driver (not alot of WOT's). I remember that I had to replace the tires on my 98 camaro at like 32,000- (seemed early), those where Eagle F-1's.

    WOW! 32k is really good. dude, anything over 25k is like a blessing. I have 34k on my fuzion zri's right now and they're getting replaced this spring with Nitto 555r's [a soft tire better for summer driving and corner-grabbing, the zri's are a good all weather tire but have a really hard compound]

    if you're looking for a decent, long lasting replacement, go for the fuzion zri's, man!

    Wow

    Wow
    I cant believe some of you are only getting 5,000-10,000 miles out of a full set if tires. Are you burning them up alot, or just driving regulalry??
    Also do you guys ever replace the front ( or back) tires only? Final question- about how much did you pay to replace all 4 stock tires with quality tires? Its been awhile since I had to replace tires so I cant remember. The name of a good supplier would also be appreciated.

    I have personily put 6K on my Goodyear Eagle F1 GS. The owner of the car before me states that he had 48K on the tires and the brakes. I know it sounds like a lot of miles. Yes the tires are worn out, but with the miles I put on them have been hell , and they are didn't show the ware as fast as I think they should have. The brakes still fell very good.
