I was wondering if anyone has gotten a new set of summer tires. The recommended is Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar. I would like to know if someone has used other tires and if so, how are they wearing. I am at 9500 miles at almost 1 year with a fair amount of wear. I have seen other tires that fit and wondered about their longevity.

I am almost at 10K and my front outsides are pretty much gone. Middle and inside still has plenty of tread. But, this is a good time to start looking at tires. Anybody changed their tires yet? How many miles did you get out of the originals? Can we have the tires dis and re-mouted on the other side? I haven't studied our treadpattern to see if they are asymmetrical or directional.

$800 is not bad. I thought the cost would been higher. How do I see the the tires are ready for replacement. I am nearly at 9k and I also see the outside of the front tires is pretty much gone.

The outside part of the tire is pretty thin and wears out quickly. I have over 16K of highway miles on my tires and there is still thread left above the wear indicators. The outside part has been worn out since about 5K Miles.

I reached 13K (miles) without much wearing, but that was mostly highway driving. I could have reached 20-25K before they would have had to be replaced.

Great link. Looks like replacements are very reasonable. Less than 1/3rd of what replacing the tires on my Gallardo was. I can definitely live with this.

Those prices for 22 inch rubber - engineered specifically for the Karma - are downright and utterly reasonable. What a pleasant surprise as compared to just about every other high-end car I've owned.

Needing tires every 10-15k miles just comes with the territory of owning a high end car. It could be worse, IIRC, the Bugatti Veyron needs new shoes every 2,500 miles at the staggering cost of $25,000 per set. Yes, not a typo. Count your blessings.

Has anyone tried the Yokos? If they are all weather and the stock Karma does not handle great in ice/snow it couldn't hurt, right? It would be great to get a testimonial though about road noise, ride, etc. from someone who put on the Yokos.

The 21 inch wheels with Snow Tires are Yokos as you probably know. I assume you are talking about 22 inch Yokos all season?

Hey Sandy Eggo - if you can afford a Veyron, $25 for tires twice a year is like me going out and buying a pack of gum :)
