I've been through quite a few different sets of tires (sizes, brands, miles) on my wrangler. Rotating them is the most important thing. I rotate mine every oil change. They will last quite a while that way.

30k is about average depending on the brand, rotation, and weight of the vehicle.

I have had several serts of BFG Muds on various vehicles. I'm always particular with wheel aligning when running mud tyres.

I tend to sell the tires to some desperate once they reach 50%, as they tend to get too noisy and rough, and lose their traction easier.

Interestingly, I've found IFS vehicles treat the tire better, getting an easy 30k miles before trading in, but live axle front ends I've battled to get 20k miles.

See on my Wrangler with a solid axle, I actually got a lot more life out of some BFG Muds than I would have ever guessed. I bought them in 2000 for my first TJ, they were 32x11.50R15 and I ran them for about 20k on that one, then I sold that Wrangler and they went on the next one after a few years in storage. Then they went for another 30k on that wrangler and still had 5/32nds of tread left when I sold that wrangler.

It depends on a lot of factors, vehicle design, tire care, driving characteristics, tire design, etc. I have ran BFG's and only gotten 25k miles and also ran Cooper and managed 40k miles ( and those were mud terrain ).
