How Many Miles Are Your Tires Lasting?
Tires have evolved some but it still looks like they are over rated, just like mpg for vehicles appear not to be true, the miles rating for tires also appears to be a joke.
It makes you wonder if these measurements considered every day conditions on this earth or outer space. With that in mind, we should look at these ratings as a guideline and chop off a good 20% for reality check because you are probably a very “aggressive” driver and that is why your tires are not lasting as much as they should… Not!
Recently I read an article and survey about tires by CR, enjoy the results below :
