The GY's outside thread wears out much faster than the center of the tire, where the actual wear indicators are. My original set lasted 30K miles and during most of that time, the outer edge looked totally bald.I'm on my second set of Goodyears. With only 2K miles on them, they are already going bald. What a waste of money. I've heard the Yokohama's are much better but almost twice the price.
Pretty close. There was still a few hundred miles worth of thread left, but I opted to have the new tires installed as part of the 30K service. The new tires only had only about 6K miles on them but they are already very bald on the outside edge.Fab,
Hey, Fab, thanks for re-posting that wear guide. Missed it the first time around. I assume you made it to that last photo at 30K miles?
Good tip. Will do.Our CSP Pat (Pat's Garage) said that because the GYs are 4+ years old, owners should also check the sides for signs of deterioration (such as cracking). This is more likely to occur if you drive the car aggressively.
