Tyre wear
« on: December 02, 2015, 09:34:18 AM »
My Mazda had its annual service and MOT yesterday - the original tyres, which have done 24,000 miles still have 6mm on the back and 4.5mm on the front drive wheels which I think is remarkable.

This is without doubt the best wear I have ever had out of a set of tyres. Can remember with some of my old cars in the 60s/70s I would only get 5,000 miles!

Sorry for the delay......................TOYO - bet I can't another set of them in this country though; but having said all that previous, it seems that that mileage in this day and age with modern suspension etc. etc. 24K is not that unusual in that 50K plus should be achievable with any decent make of tyre on the back wheels.
