    tire wear

    9600 miles and dealer says I need two new rear tires due to wear. Is this relatively normal? What are your experiences? Incidentally, I have an '06 C2S cab with standard tires.

    Re: tire wear

    Yes. You might want to visit Tire Rack's web site for discussions on different brands/wear. "Normal' wear range reported on these forums for the rears seems to be 10K, sometimes less, sometimes more.

    Re: tire wear

    And what brand would these standard tires be harlandoc?

    Re: tire wear

    I was told my Pzeros would last 10k if I am lucky.
    Well, I am at 6k and the backs are almost done.
    Pzeros seems all the weight is back there in the rear. but I love the grip of these tires!!

    I lowered it with H & R springs, I know they would of lasted a few thousand longer if I didnt do the change of springs, plus doing a 4 wheel alignment is crucial for tire wear, I lagged a bit on that after lowering the car. I am excited to get the PS2's, If I get 10k plus a little off the Pilot Sports, I am happy Pcar girl!!!

    Rear PS2's 19's are running $462........

    Re: tire wear

    Vincenzina, where did you get your PS2? Did they do a good job on mounting them on your car?

    Re: tire wear

    The 997 has a radically updated suspension setup that really exploits the latest in high performance tires. Unfortunately, all that incredible handling means excessive tire wear. This is not that unusual for a Porsche,--a friend of mine went through the rears on his 930 (when they were in vogue) in about 5000 miles. Figure generally a two to one wear rate on the rears to the fronts. 10,000 - 15,000 is about right. (Rear)
