I have the Track rims and tired and I'm about to hit 25K miles on mine and when I had my oil changed a few weeks ago they sheet they gave me back said I was still in the green on the front and just about 50% left on the back.

So I agree with the alignment part.

I have to keep my tires for the life of the car pretty much. I bought a warranty on them and pretty much gives me free replacements for life so I can't touch mine.

Man, that's some pretty good mileage out of those OEM tires. You must be pretty easy on her.

Wow guys these tires seem ok to me coming from the Evo9 which the yokohama tires wear out in 10K and I mean lucky if you get to 11K. More info I needed before my purchase thanks.

I know it sounds shocking and by your post you're upset about it I know, but a purchase like this car has added costs, most noticeably in tires. the nature of the car and the tires Hyundai puts on it are not high mileage nor intended to be. It's a niche market that people normally accept tire wear being a casualty.

My 235/50/18 tires were also bald at 20K. If tire performance is not extremely important to you, perhaps you could consider a couple of Michelin tires. Michelin has a Energy Saver tire that gets pretty good reviews and supposedly saves on gas. 55K to 65K mileage anticipated. Probably will get less, but 40 to 50K sounds pretty good to me. Michelin also has a tire called Hydro Edge. Excels in wet weather, I'm not sure how it performs on dry pavement. The mileage is listed at 90K, which sounds great, but I live in Arizona, so probably not the tire for me.

It also helps to check the treadwear rating on the tires you want to buy first. Try looking for 320AA and above for mileage, but anything under that will not last too long but will have better grip since they are softer tires.

My 2010 3.8 track tires have 29k on them and starting to notice some traction loss but I drive somewhat aggressive and my wife and I are usually in it so extra weight helps traction a little but may hurt wear.

I have looked at tires and noticed that Michelin just came out with a new tire (pilot super sport). They seem to have a 15K warranty for cars with staggered tires and 30k for those that don't. Haven't been able to see one yet and very few reviews since they are so new. Pricey compared to some others but am surprised at warranty.

Noticed that Bridgestone has at least 3 different tires in my tire size. Seems like overkill and may cause higher costs to produce and maintain an inventory. Michelin's new tire replaced their sport ps2.

I ran Michelin Pilot Sports on my bimmer, but after going through 3 sets at almost a grand per set for staggered 17s, I decided to switch to Nitto NT05s & actually liked them better.
