    Get your wheel allignement checked - your tow/toe could be well off/ camber etc...

    I'm on 16,900 miles and when I checked my tread depth on the fronts about 3 weeks ago they had 5mm left.

    Michelin Pilot Sport Exaltos or something like that, can never remember all the blurb.

    I got 30k out of my first set of Michelins Pilots, I've got Goodyear F1s on now and they're about half worn after 18k.

    I know its not relevant to this thread but my brother once bought some Eagle F1's for the front of his Corrado VR6, he got them cheap off a dodgy guy from the pub. We were shocked to find out that they had worn half down after 500 miles! The old dub is well known to be a tyre killer but WTF!

    Watching the news a week later there was an article about fake goodyears being sold in the area :cool: No wonder they were rubbish, some chinese tat!

    Suprised it doesnt happen more often these days to be honest, everything else is being faked!
