How many miles do B5.5 owners get with stock Continental ContiTouring 195/65/15 tires?

I am just at 30k, and a nail is forcing me to buy a new tire. Tire places don't fix the flat, stating the tread depth is low :mad:

Thanks

You're pretty lucky if you ask me. My Turbo Miata has Toyo T1-S's on it and I'm lucky if I get 12k out of a set. And that's with regular rotating!!!

But God Bless that traction!!! :D

I'm at 20k and I'd say this is the last time the current front tyres will be used up front, if the rears reach the same state at the end of 30k then it's all new tyres. Wet grip has gone off a lot though the tread depth doesn't look too bad. I want to replace the rims anyway.

I have put almost 20k on them and they still look good. I think I will see 40k out of them easily. Won't buy them again though. I need a stickier tire.
