Default Re: Pilot Super Sport - awful tread wear ?

RTABs / FCABs

Burned through a set of rears in like 5k to almost bald - changed RTABs - 15k and still going strong

Got the partial warranty credit on the new pair too, even though it was dude to mechanical issues lol

I forget - the tread life warranty is like 30k.

And then it's cut in half, if your fronts and rears are different sizes; which mine are so 15k.


Then they took the mileage that were on them, vs the warranty (15k), and pro-rated a discount towards the new pair.

So I essentially got the new pair for 66% off.... then drove straight over to my shop to get RTABs and FCABs done... then an alignment.

That's not too bad at all. I bet where I get screwed will be the fact that I run a winter set up from mid nov - now.

if they look at the invoiced mileage and my car current odometer it'll look like I put 9500-ish on the pilots. When in reality close to 1/2 that is on my winters. Oh well ..still going to check into it.

Toe in up front, hands down. It's better in all ways, in my opinion, especially on center, giving the wheel a locked down feeling over flighty sections of road. I like a steering wheel that "wants" to stay at 12 o'clock, requiring driver intent to change direction.

I like to drive fast and I don't want the steering wheel to do anything other than what I tell it. I don't like overly quick turn-in or fast ratios and I like some amount of understeer if really provoked.

I'm weird

Toe in up front less than, equal to or more than in the rear? Thanks Eric.
