We both have the v12's. They're estimated at 40,000 miles in the size I got.

No real difference. The major difference in tire wear will be your alignment and how you're driving the car, not the wheel diameter (unless it causes you to rub).Originally Posted by irvin787878
I've run them for quite a while on my car.Originally Posted by irvin787878
My take is that they're great for someone on a budget. If you're really looking to track/Auto-X the car, you need to look elsewhere (then again, you should probably have dedicated tires for event days anyway). For an all-around regular DD car summer tire @ ~$100/corner, they're worth the buy. Where these tires really shine is wet pavement; my last summer tire was way too hydroplane-prone for my liking.

Btw... blouch got back to me, and Mike agreed with my thinking regarding the 1.5xt-r for my goals. He said if I'm going to stay pump to do the 8cm, but if I'm looking at doing e85, the 10cm would be great.
10cm^2 it is
