Mine were down to 4mm at 6000 miles.Jack D said:Just got through a set of front tyres in 9000 miles on my TDI! Is this normal?
Ian_C said:A rather timeous post this;
9000 miles on my 2.0 T and my front two are a ragged mess!
They need replaced ASAP.
Got Continentals on right now and was quoted £260 for 2 - how does this compare to you guys?
Can anyone suggest any cheaper better tyres etc.
Nope 28k, the first set of tyres on my PD150 Golf remapped to 210bhp made 35k. It's the way you treat them.........

I'm getting tyres (225/40 18's, off the top of my head) for about £100 fitted(ish).
Very happy with them, they ride a lot better than the Continentals or F1's I had before.
Outright grip is maybe slightly worse than F1's, but I reckon I'm faster on them, especially in the wet.
This is bacause the F1's would grip well, then let go suddenly.
So finding the limit was hard.
The Dunlop's, by comparison, slide in a nice and progressive way, giving more feel and confidence.
