Default Tire life...?

What do you guys think will be the likely life of the tires? 5,000-6,000 miles? The owner's manual says "significantly shorter" than regular tires.

I drove a pre-production Karma with 11K miles on it and the tires still had life left. I am guessing in the 15K mile range.

Bottom line, the tires on demo cars were essentially bald at ~ 6000 mi
