Unhappy tiresgetting used up WAY to fast!!

ok, just in august i bought 2 new sumitomo htr plus tires, 215/35 18", i dont drive hard on them and ive only put 10,000 miles on them and they are already almost done.... whats going on? i rotate them and i dont burn out and i drive pretty easy on them, theyre balanced and aligned so why are they getting used up so fast????

Do you drive faster than the rated speed?

Re: tiresgetting used up WAY to fast!!

You guys are overlooking one major thing....

They're cheap as ****. Buy some good tires and you'll see a lot more life out of them. I have around 19,000 miles on my Continental ContiExtremes, and they've still got 5/32nd treadlife left. And I drive them hard as ****. Cheap tires don't really seem like that good of a value now, don't they?
