We all know that the stock tires aren't the best, I'm interested to know how long they lasted you. (for those that changed them already).


Post SX or EX (it makes a difference)
Sedan or Koup
Miles before changing it.


I'll start:

Koup SX
9000 miles

Don't know if this will be much help! Sorry if it isn't! I'm from Canada and I go by kilometers, I sold mine but with the rate they were going at i'd say between 30,000 and 36,000km. So I suppose around 19,000 and 23,000 miles. These were stock Koup SX 17's, you would figure the ex would last longer because of the fact they would have more thread due to they aren't low profile.... They had 18,000km when they were sold, that again would have killed them!

My 2010 EX has 33,000 miles on it and the tires only have around 500-700 miles left on the tires (max... they are just about down to the safty tabs).

I have a SX sedan with Goodyear LS2s... I put 12k miles on 'em so far and I would say they are 75-80% worn. POS tires....

I am sure the stock tires are not the best, but it seems like the people that got less mileage on their tires have manual transmissions...haha

Does it have to be replacing a full set? First I replaced a single tire at 5000miles due to a punctured sidewall. Then at 7500 miles I replaced that same tire, and another, you guessed it punctured sidewalls. After that second round I decided even $80 Prime Well PZ900s are better than Eagle LS2s, at least then if sidewalls keep popping the tire is cheaper.

I'll probably replace all four with something better once I recouperate from all the other purchases I've made recently, and from the wreck damage cost. I think I'd be happy with Kumho ECSTA ASTs, had them on a probe and really liked them for the short time I drove the car.

I'll probably just get mine rotated soon to even the wear. Everyone else is doing that too, right?
