    997CS Tyre Wear?

    I've hit the 5000 mile mark and my rear tyres (P-zeros) have had it (Worn out). I've not been on a track at all, but i do enjoy driving the car hard (No standing start wheel spins or smoking donuts though) and I wonder whether this seems a reasonable wear rate?? Any comments on your tyre wear experience much appreciated.

    Re: 997CS Tyre Wear?

    It doesn't seem normal to me but I don't think any tire should only last 5000 miles. Now I have read other comments on Rennteam saying their tires don't last long at all. I only have about 2000 miles on my car and my P-Zeros look very good. I don't drive hard or track my car so I might not be in the norm. Still had for me to believe these tires don't last long but I guess that is what we have to deal with.

    Re: 997CS Tyre Wear?

    I'm unhappy with mine at 7800 miles... looks like only 20% left.

    Re: 997CS Tyre Wear?

    i have like 2000 miles on the car, tires are like new. smells good too.

    Re: 997CS Tyre Wear?

    There are several other threads, one very recent, dealing with tyre wear comparisons - just use the search facility.

    Carlos from Spain makes some good points about road surfaces and climate being a factor in some countries. But ACA, I notice you're in the UK. Your tyre wear seems totally unacceptable. I've got over 11,000 miles on my Michelin Pilots with plenty left and I drive hard as well, when possible.

    I seriously suggest getting rid of the Pirellis when you change and replace them with Pilots.

    Re: 997CS Tyre Wear?

    i have 20,000 miles on my pilots (recently bought the car second hand...previous owner drove VERY lightly).

    they're VERY loud, but they grip decently....

    Re: 997CS Tyre Wear?

    Pirelli's always get knackered pretty quick but 5,000 miles is bit of a joke! I got 15,000 miles out of a set pirelli's (2003 996 with 18 Carrera's) My 997 has 6,000 miles already and no wear what so ever on my Michelin's,
