Good to hear, I'm not sure what the rest of us have been experiencing for the last 3 years. Regardless for a performance tire I think you got plenty wear compared to others.

My first set was 18,515 , second set lasted 21,625 so you are doing great. All season pirelli runflats.

Re: What caused damage to my front tires inner edges only

I recently had a 4 wheel alignment on my 15' JGC Summit with V-6 and only 3,900 miles. It had noticeable inside tire wear on the front two tires. The computer alignment proved that the factory setup was not to specifications. The dealer performed the alignment under the factory warranty. New vehicles from the factory do not get a true four wheel alignment, they try to get them close, but no cigar. I always pay close attention to tire wear early on to insure that I don't bear the cost of buying new tires prematurely. The warranty covers a 4 wheel alignment within one year and 12K miles. Properly aligned and correct tire pressure maintained, tires will wear fairly evenly resulting in good tire wear.

Re: What caused damage to my front tires inner edges only

From what I remember, the factory alignment spec for front camber calls for angling the tires inward (vertical axis) leading to inner tread wear. I actually see this in when going through a wet spot in a parking lot or something. My Proxes ST II's leave deeper tread marks on the inside of the front 2 tires than on the outside of them. I plan on asking NTB to align "out of spec" for a more realistic alignment for tire longevity. Jeep picked that crazy camber angle for runflats & performance over anything else. If I stand in front of the Jeep, I can actually notice the front 2 wheels angled inward vs the rears.
