Not bad. I had about 40K on my Fuzion ZR1 when they started gettting bad. If you don't burn the runner off the rear, some of the performance tires can last a long time.

I have 14,000 on a set of Bridgestone Pole positions now. They have almost no wear on them. The paperwork says 40,000 warranty. Do you drag race a lot? I gave that stuff up a while back and have had to buy tires less often since then. Have not had to buy new heads since then either.

Be real lucky if our Falkens make it 10,000 miles.

Holy hell, I must be beating the hell out of my tires. One pair of BFG TA KDW's, Two pair of Mickey Thompson's, one pair of Nitto 555R's. 20,000 miles Funny the fronts are just fine.
Granted, Ive had some bad luck with tires though, Very bad luck.

I have a set of those. It's funny, people who don't know performance tires told me I had pretty bald tires right after I got them. They have 13k on them now, and I'm worried how much longer they're going to last me.
I like them though, I'll probably go with another set after these get low.

I've put 33k on my GS-D3's and they are just getting to the wear bars now. I'd love to get the same tires again, but I don't think I can afford them this time. I've narrowed my choices to the BFG KDWs, Bridgestone 760's and Firestone Wide Ovals...unless i can get a great deal on the Goodyears again.

I've had goodyears on my old wheels and they dry rotted and wore pretty fast. I had Kumho ASX's on my 18's and they spun too much and the rear wore fast. The BFG KDW NT's have been great in wet or dry and sho no real wear yet. My friend had a supercharged and cammed TA and he hates his goodyears he wants to sell them for another set of KDW NT's or DR's1998 Trans Am 85k miles.
