The tires measured 16/32" tread when new. At 9,200 miles they were at 11/32 rear and 13/32 front. I rotated them at this point and almost 9,000 miles later they check in at 9/32 front and 10-11/32 rear. It's amazing how much better they wear with no burnouts!
Here's a question for Tyreboys_Demaxin. What's the deal with the Goodyear Wrangle A/T tires that Tirerack.com is selling cheap? I have the 275/65/20 A/T's from the factory and have been satisfied with them so far. For about $150 each, I figure it's hard to go wrong. They have the blackwall tires for around $250 each, but the whitewalls are $100 cheaper! Are these things blems?
your not kidding tires wear fast when you have to much power
oh well you gotta have fun some time...thats the price i usually sell the GY A/T's for but my price would be mounted and balanced verse their you still have shipping but thats something i never understood why goodyear did that..hope this helps
ps if the tires are blems the seller has to state they are blems and if he or she fails to do that they can be fined big time..
