Only 10k miles out of rear PS2s?
Last August at 35k miles, I replaced my rear PS2s. They had about 10k miles on them, probably a little less, and they were really shot. Now, 5k miles later, the rears look like they're at least half done. The fronts have plenty of tread and look like they could go another 10k miles.
Note, the rears (and fronts) are wearing evenly, and these tires do not see track time. I've never done a "burn out" with the car and don't drag race -- just healthy doses of spirited driving.
Any similiar experiences? I'm wondering whether cold weather driving is making the rears wear more quickly. I don't drive the car in snow, but we haven't had much snow in the NE this year, so I've driven the car over the past few months. With diminished traction in the cold weather, maybe I'm spinning the rears more than I realize? Do summer tires wear more quickly when it's cold? Any thoughts?
