    Tire wear problem with 19" on Cayenne S...

    Have a problem with a Cayenne S which was originally one of many cars Porsche recognized as having faulty alignment issues.

    The dealership replaced both front tires free of charge at 8000 miles due to this issue. They determined that the rear tires still had substantial tread remaining so therefore did not replace the rears.
    Now at 18K miles the car has two nearly bald rear tires and two front tires that need to be replaced again as well... I've taken the car in to have tread measurements taken and sent to Porsche. Have any of you heard of such an issue? The dealership swears that they have fixed the original issue.

    This car is driven on well paved roads by my over-60 mother who drives slowly and no one else. I personally have a Cayenne S as well but live in Los Angeles. My Cayenne S has 25K miles on it with OE tires that are in far better shape than her newest pair of tires. LA roads are crap... I drive fast... yet I sufffer none of these issues that my mother is going through. Thoughts?

    buy her a lincoln town car?
    seriously though, there has to be something wrong with it, because, like you said, i doubt your mother is doing burnouts & drifting around corners & other things that would wear out the tires so quickly. So looks like your only choice is keep pestering the dealer until they find the problem...unless one of our more knowledgable rennteamers knows the actual answer

    Re: Tire wear problem with 19" on Cayenne S...

    Sorry, I don't think you can expect more than 20K miles on the porsche approved N-rated tires. They are a soft compound high performance tire, and the price you pay for the excellent cornering ability and braking performance these tires offer, is bad wear rating.

    14-15K is nornal on an S with OEM tires. I have now changed to Yoko's via Scorpions from the Contis. Getting more out of the scorpions but expecting 30 from the Yokos

    FYI... both Cayenne's have the same tires... Z rated Pirelli Rossos. My set here in LA are still immaculate at 25K miles. Still doesn't make sense why my mother's vehicle is on a second set with way more wear than my first.
