No problem... and I can't be certain how many miles I've got out of mine. I was running so hard this summer for work I literally didn't get to rotate one set and wore the backs out faster than the fronts (I run with all my tools in the bed of my truck).
Then, immediately after I replaced those, my front ball joints went and I was running for a week non-stop on bad joints. Chewed up the inside of the front tires (just my luck). I'd imagine I could easily get 45K out of a set if I regularly rotated them and was able to keep my truck legit long enough to run a set.
The way I look at it is like this. I go through 2 sets of tires per year (if nothing happens out of the norm to either set). That's $1000/year for tires through treadwright. It's be $2200 - $2500 with another brand. You get to pick the carcass when you order if you want to (just tell them, they'll make it happen). The Warden pattern is similar to the BFG All Terrain (the carcasses I choose to run). Now, hopefully when I order a new pair for the front here in the next week - my truck and time will cooperate so I can rotate them and nothing out of the norm happens to them.
Also, I'm glad when the balljoints went I was running these. It would have been $600 in tires vs the $250 that it is going to cost to replace them now.
