Bridgestone ER30 Turanza fitted on 18" Valley Alloys 2.5 R5 SE Sport.

Started with new tyres with 8mm all round after 6451 miles just before i gave the car back to Inchcape depths were

FRONT O/S 6.0MM, FRONT N/S 6.0MM, REAR O/S 6.5MM, REAR N/S 6.5MM

Tread wear rateing was 140, Tyres pressures were as per recomendations on the sticker on the door.

Mixed motorway and around town miles.

The New car is having Grabber UHP x 4 fitted on Saturday.

Furion.

At around 1mm per 3,200 miles, then if you had changed them at 3mm, they would have done about 16K.

I wonder if the tyre wear rate increases as the tread depth decreases?

You mean the way the fuel tank empties quicker after half


I was pretty anal about keeping tyre pressures right and not turning the steering while stationary, small things but perhaps make a differance,

Right on all accounts.

I aways find it never seems to take as long to come from somewhere as it does going there in the first place.

Except Singapore, which always takes at least an hour longer to get back from than to go............................co-incidentally it must be about a 6451 mile trip..

Furion, those are good mileages for your bridgestone tyres. I reckon you must "feather" your accelerator and brakes.

No just normal everyday driving, niw and then a bit of welly, Because its was my first suv i did brake cautiousley as i am aware of the two tones that will not want to stop suddenly, and in the back of my mind there was always this thing about the bridges not lasting
