it depends upon the tyre really, some michellin/continental long life tires would last a good 20,000 miles, possibly but some more sportier/summer tires will last less. what tires do u have on at the moment?

Question of the year right there!

What size are your tyres
What make are they?
What type of roads do you drive on?
What is your driving style??

etc...

You see the contributing factors?

Depends greatly on make - I had 15" michellin energies on my clio which last a whopping 27k, others have only last 7-10k

Well, I have the Dunlop Sport Maxx 225 45 17. They came with the car...

I tend to drive on urban roads.

Well, my driving style makes me think that I am kind of hard on the tyres..my dad thinks that I brake too late for everything. Also, I tend to find myself wheelspinning slightly...especially in the wet! But I dont screech round or have the ABS or traction control kicking in all the time.

Thanks.

15k maybe?

Why you wanting to know how many miles anyway? are you wanting to upgrade your tyres or something?
