Hey guys just a question. I'm curious how many miles people got with there OEM tires before having to replace them. I'm speaking to the daily drivers who don't track their cars. I'm still on my OEM tires (2 years old) and they look fine but my guess is they'll need replacing before the year is out. I don't go to track events or do burnouts. Just regular every day driving. Thanks.

Smirnoff Old Boy!!

I got near exactly 17K out of my OEM rears and replaced em with a pair of NEW unused rears I picked up from another forum brother. I still have the OEM fronts on the car and they look fantastic for having 21.4K on em. I also picked up an unused OEM front from a forum brother here in SoCal and will use that along with the new tire on my spare,,, prolly around 25 to 30K. Saved a ton of $$,,, so far. At some point down the road, when I cant scrounge up a decent barely worn set of rears,, I will probably go with a set of Michelin's.

On my '14 at about 12K miles mine started getting more noisy. I replaced them with another set of factory wheels and tires that only had 800 miles on them at 16K miles. Upon further inspection on the removed tires, I noticed some pretty good separations in the grooves between treads.

20K average for the OEM tires.

Look at the inside tread bars .... not the outside. Negative camber !!!

Also; look for the wear bars to gauge remaining tread depth.

Will do. I'll get a good look when the car is up on the rack at my next oil change which will be semi-soon. Just not in a rush to drop $1,200.00 on a new set of Michelin Pilot Sport 4S'....ugh. If anyone has a line on how to get them cheaper I'm all ears. Thanks guys!

Cut the steering wheel full stop and you can see the fronts.

Get a mirror to see the inside rear tires.

They will wear faster on the inside because of the neg camber. Has caught a few off guard with reasonable tread on the outside and bald inside.

Everyone should have one of them dollar store plastic hand mirrors.

Putting the original summer tires and rims back on tomorrow.


Have about 18k on them.


Rears look pretty good, fronts slightly more worn.


Figure I can get another 5k out of them safely before replacing.


Mostly daily highway miles, with some weekend spirited driving involved.


Will probably go with a different setup unless a really good local deal shows up in the classifieds.

Just replaced mine right around 17,500. Front tire outside edges had the most wear--the alignment was within spec when removed, but spirited driving around city corners will do that, I suppose. Could have probably gotten away with running them another couple thousand miles since I hadn't quite reached any of the wear bars, but they were loud and the tire of choice of very few people to begin with.

so far, 17,000 miles on OEM SS originals.

Took off originals in NOV, rain/flood season, and put on the new set for better traction.
Got two full sets of 5.
As of last month, running on old units again, both fronts and rears, mostly fair weather city street driving with occasional spinning.
FWY cruising at 75 to 80 is common.

side notes:
I keep mine inflated at 10% over specs, based on 6am cold garage.
I also make it a priority to never ever hit a pothole, slow down in/out of driveways.

I barely squeaked out 15k on mine, they were probably due at 14k if I am honest, but I was having a bit too much fun sliding around corners.

I bought my ride on June 1, 2017 and the dealer where I bought it had installed new tires, mileage was 17,000.

I now have 32,000 miles and tires are still good, but the rears have less tread than the fronts, as it should be....:devil

Spirited driving 15,000 or less, conservative driving 20,000 or more. Results may vary.....:grin

OEM Tires

Hello All,

It has been a while since I have visited the site as I sold my SS over a year ago. Miss her more than I thought I would.

Anyway, I am replying here as I am not able to start new threads at this time. I am cleaning out the basement and realized I have my original OEM tires tucked neatly away in a climate controlled space and they have to go. They came off my new 2016 SS when I hit the 2800 mile mark. They are in mint condition with lots of life left. They are looking for a new home. I don't want to ship the tires so if there are any local SS owners (Northern Illinois / Southern Wisconsin) that are interested in a extra set of OEM tires, please PM me. Trust me, price is right.

Thanks,
Jeff
