What tire salesman is not going to say the car you drive is not hard on tires? Isn’t it logical that a tire salesman will say your make/model of car is hard on tires? He’s a salesman, no? He make money selling tires, no?........and doesn’t he say the tires he sells are the best and will outperform the current tire on your car.

We have 13K miles on the OE Hancock’s........they still look new.?‍♂

Personally, I don’t buy replacement tires with high mileage tread life warranties. In general, the rubber compound in high mileage warranty tires tends to be harder than the rubber compound in lower mileage tires. In general, harder means noisier and all tires (hard or soft compound) get harder, therefore noisier, with age. I prefer quiet(er) tires. Granted, there are other factors that also determine noise level in tires. But again, in general, a harder rubber compound will be noisier than a softer compound.

Probably not going to find a tire with 300 tread wear number on the sidewall with a 80K tread life warranty.?
