Tyre mileage

Post by DavidP » Thu Jun 07, 2018 5:31 pm

Hi,

My 2.0 TDi 4Drive Xcellence 150 manual has covered just over 14,000 miles on its first set of tyres. The tread depth is now a little over 1.6mm so new tyres are being fitted early next week.

What sort of mileage are others getting from their tyres? Mine are the Bridgestone 225/50/18 W (95) that came with the car when it was new last July.

Is this just your front tyres or are they all at 1.6mm?

Mine came on R17 Hankook Ventus Prime 3's. 14 months and 11k miles in they have left on them 4.5mm front and 6.5mm rear.

Sounds a lot like mine. It's done 13,000 and I'm thinking they have a couple of thousand left at most. Not massively impressed by Bridgestones. I'll be interested to hear what else might be on offer.

They’ve worn evenly all round so front and rear being replaced. Going for Continentals.

21k on falken azensis.

Done 3k roughly on winters, then replaced the fronts. Back is sitting just shy of 4mm at the moment.

I got 16.5k out of my front Falkons, just changed them. Rears still on 6mm.
Strangely, my fronts wore out in the centre with still a fair amount of tread at the edges. It's usually the other way around for me! Tyre pressures were not too high I don't think, I've been running on 34psi all round

Four new Continentals fitted today. The ride seems a little firmer than on the old Bridgestones. I checked the pressures in case the garage had over inflated the tyres but they were all spot on. I do a weekly check of the pressures so I know that the old ones were not low.

Ours has done over 17k on the original Bridgestones and still has around 4mm tread all round. I might be looking at Michelin Primacy 4 when the time comes. My RWD XF Sportbrake is on Goodyear Vector 4 Season G2s and - as well as being quiet and compliant in normal driving - it was actually better in the snow than the 4WD Ateca! Unfortunately they don't make these, Michelin Cross Climates or Nokian Weatherproof in the 225/50R18 size, even though it is shared with the BMW X1.
