17000 Km's and need new tyres already wtf?

I have just clocked over 17000 Km in my Laredo Crd and it needs new tyres already, I have never heard of such poor mileage out of a tyre.

Has anyone else had the same sort of mileage? Itt he worst I have had previously was on a front wheel drive Hyundai, and that was just the fronts, as the boot was always loaded with tools...

Re: 17000 Km's and need new tyres already wtf?

A friends 120 Prado only got 20000 out of the Dunlop Grandtreks on the front. My brother's Kluger wasnt much better.

It will depend a lot on where you drive. Someone that does a lot of suburban driving, with lots of corners to turn and lots of stop/start, will see tyres wearing out faster than someone that does a significant amount of freeway/highway driving.

I agree with you that it is poor though.

Re: 17000 Km's and need new tyres already wtf?

I got 14,000km our of our 1st gen Kluger. Was very annoyed as I never thrashed it. They were OEM Toyo tyres. Changed them to Coopers and after 30,000km they stuck better and still showed no sign of wear.
I noticed our fronts were getting dow and we are on 15,000km now. I will not put the same tyres back on as I do not like the OEM's.

Re: 17000 Km's and need new tyres already wtf?

Guys what kind of wear are you seeing? Is it shoulders of the tread being worn or the whole tread going?

Re: 17000 Km's and need new tyres already wtf?

We r at 26000 ks, about 1500 offroad and most of the balance hi speed touring and we probably have about 10000k left so much better result than you are seeing. We did experience accelerated centre tread wear when running at 36 psi but going back to 33 psi has stopped this. Tyres have been surprisingly good though they do have plenty of cuts and chips!!

There are some pretty big differences here, i thought we should all be getting similar...same tyre after all.... I run 38 psi...this is what the driving courses recommend as a minimum as it improves breaking and wet weather traction....

Fairly even wear...a little more in the centre on the rear...

Definitely won't be replacing with the same...looking at the cooper Zion ltz has anyone heard anything about these?

Re: 17000 Km's and need new tyres already wtf?

I find that major wear in tyres under 20,000 klms as alarming, when the car is being used normally.
I just got out of a Turbo Territory, which was not driven mildly, and still received over 30,000 klms before needing replacement, which was due to noise rather than the tread thickness..

Took the Kuhmo's off our Laredo crd at 10,000km and found they where half gone seem to be a very soft tyre, the bfg's had better more than double that because they weren't cheep

Re: 17000 Km's and need new tyres already wtf?

I love my Coopers A/T3's and they come with a 60k warranty - not sure what happens if wear out in under 60k but I still find it comforting to know that they stand behind their product.

Re: 17000 Km's and need new tyres already wtf?

With the coopers, if you show them you rotated every 10,000km they will replace them. While I hae never claimed the warranty, they were a great tyre on my Kluger. Stuck so much better than the OEM Toyo.
