    To be honest if I knew how bad the stock tires are in terms of ride and comfort compared to the ones I have now I would have ditched them much sooner. The only downside to the tires I have now especially with the upsize is that I lost a consistent 1 mpg.

    I'm a very "proactive" tire guy rather than a reactive one. The most important safety feature between me and the pavement are my tires, and I don't wait for something to go wrong by trying to stretch the mileage on them. Regardless of the make/type of tire...I change them between 25k and 30K. Also, rolling resistance is no big deal in my estimation...I'd rather have a better performing tire than one that will save me $.10 cents in gas every 1,000 miles !

    Tires are not cheap, i want to get my moneys worth . I dont plan on going bald with them. that would be stupid.

    By what you say, I should get new tires by the
    50% mark . If that was the case tire manufactures would put the tread bars for that point in tire life . I don't like throwing money out the window

    50% is a little excessive.

    I just reached 38k and changed all four tires with a new set of Continental Extreme DWS all season. My first impressions are real good with these tires. I'll wait a little longer after I drive more miles before I can give a good opinion.
