I've got almost 7000 miles on mine, and have rotated them once. I hope they last until next February.

Now it has 26,446 miles, and I don't want to risk damage to a rim (not scared of a flat, I've had a few and some at "extralegal" speeds) so Friday, I got her up on stands and pulled the wheels and loaded them in my PU along with 4 GoodYear Eagle RS-A tires I had set aside and carried them all to a buddies and we swapped them and balanced them and all is well again.

These are tires I know I can trust.

That's otherwise known as Dry Rot. had the same issue with stock Kumho's on my Focus after 3 years. I replaced them with the Continental's and was much happier.

My new 2014 Mustang GT has the Goodyear F1's on them.

Yep, Dry Rot. Happens to the best of tires depending on age and weather conditions. Here in AZ they recommend replacing the tires on cars that are always parked outside about every 4-5 years regardless of tread life to avoid blow outs. Every year around this time you can see reminders (tire shrapnel) of this all over the freeways.

Really cold weather cycles will also do this to tires.

I still have about 60% tread left on mine with 22k miles. Stock, all season PZeros. I have had them rotated an balanced every 3-5k miles when I take it in for an oil change/service.

On my 2010 mustang I think I got about 35k out of the stock P zeros. Could have went further but the road noise coming off them was terrible.

From my experience dont put Cooper zeons on, the road noise on them was horrible as well. Was disapointed to see Cooper Zeons on the Roushs at a local dealer recently... who knows maybe I got a bad set.

My new 14 GT only has about 800 miles on it so no telling what I will get out of the PZeros but When they do go, I am going to put Michelen Pilots on like I should have with the '10.

I had the same with my stock tires, all season ones. Didn't worry about it to much until my brother pointed it out and said it's not that safe to drive on them. I got 31000 miles out of them. Just bought new Cooper RS3-a tires and so far so good. I haven't had them out in rain or driven on and twisty roads yet to see how they handle.

I had roughly 35k on them, and that included a few trips to the drag strip.

I got as much as 50K miles on the stock P Zeros. I admit I did do some spirited driving which included chirping of the tires, but no full-tilt burn-outs.

The shortest my P Zeros have lases is as little as 5K miles; but not from wear; from nails puncturing the tires on a tread location that the tire shops refuse to fix or somehow the nail coming up like a claw and puncturing the sidewall (I don't even know how it happens but they did this mysterious maneuver to me twice).

Sidewall puncture = new tire. Not even your shade tree mechanic would try to plug/patch that.
