well, this is mainly one question, im looking for anyone with experience with these tires, my question is, what type of life am i looking at with them? Like mileage wise, i do autocross, but once a month only, and other than that i mainly pussy foot around town(well, unless the ocasional jackass in a 350, SS, Evo or likewise decides to challenge me, lol) ive already done research on the grip(which from what my findings have revealed will soon be AWESOMER), but just wondering what exactly the 140 treadwear translates to in real life situations(i know that theoretically its about 140% of 7000 miles, but as we all know, theory and practice are 2 completely different beasts), anyways, any info would be greatly appreciated guys!

I ran them last year and I thought for a high end hi po tire the wear was pretty good (this is w/ a fair amount of autoxing)

Some hints (this applies to any tire)- if you want your tires to last as long possible (my choice in tires tends to run $ so I want max life out of them :))- rotate often- at minimum I rotate every oil change (3500 miles) more often if I'm autoxing/hitting the track. With new tires I rotate at 1000 miles the first time.

I also monitor air pressure almost daily (good habit to get into).

Make sure your alignment is up to snuff- a whacked aligned will eat up tires- fast.

much appreciated guys, however being a ASE certified technician with access to everything i need to maintain a car, trust me, i know, lol(for example, the cobb rear sway bar i have, is greased once every 1-2 weeks, along with the tires being rotated EVERY oil change(3-5k, if 5k i put a quart in about every 3k, lol), and nothing but the best is put in/on my car, and dont worry wagone, the streets during the day are not my playground, i never do anything beyond my own limits at all, however, when no ones on them during the late late nights and at the track, its a free for all! lol
