Stock P Zero Nero tires tread life
 
How many miles did yall get out of your stock tires? I havent even hit 15K yet and im damn near down to the wear bars. No burnouts...but i do drive aggressively. Reviews seem to be missed between bad thread life and some reaching the 45000 warranty on the tires.
What would be a good replacement? stock 19" rims tires are p245/45 zr19 can i fit wider tires on my rims? whats the widest that will safely mount?

I'm at 15,600 and have about 50% left. I think driving habits have a LOT to do with it.

True true...and im sure my trip to the backroads a couple weekends ago didnt help the tires any

I only got 14k out of my stock Pirelli's. Then I managed to get 20k out of a set on Nitto Invo's. Tires ain't cheap.

Derf00 06-05-2014 02:49 PM

15-20 on the stockers.

sbradle4 06-05-2014 03:27 PM

I got 18 out of the Pzeros... I was pretty disappointed with them, felt like the traction on them was poor as well. Loving the Continental Extreme Contact DWS I have on the Stang now.

I'm going on 17,000 with mine and they are in pretty good shape.

Can you put a wider or beefier tire on those rims?

Nuke 06-05-2014 05:47 PM

Driving habits, tire pressure, road surface all impact treadwear. The stock P-zeros on my wife's car were near end-of-life at a bit over 20k miles

tbear853 06-05-2014 08:29 PM

Ours were like 50% when we bought the 2008 GT last June with just shy of 22,000 miles. They all four have "3107" date codes which tells me they are likely OEM, the car had an early life in Nebraska before the owner moved here.

On these western Virginia highways, roadways, etc .... conservative driving ... they still seem to have accelerated their wear. I'm thinking they may make the 30-32,000 mile mark ..... unless I change them first.

GTjoe49 06-06-2014 08:04 AM

I got close to 30K on my OEM P-Zero's, but I didn't lite em up too often...

MrSandman 06-06-2014 07:45 PM

There is a big difference between the stock all season Pirelli's.. and the summer only Pirelli's that come with the brembo/track pack.. BIG difference. Please specify which ones you have.

15-20 is normal for the summer only tires. They are not rated for temps below, i think.. 60 degrees F. They are only really good at 80 and above.

The stock all-season tires should last much longer.

R1nStang 06-07-2014 02:13 PM

mine are the all season tires

allenmaty 06-09-2014 10:34 AM

I've got 21K on mine (all season) so far and they are about done, I'll try to squeeze a few thousand more miles, but I spin them quite often... it's really hard NOT to ;)

jz78817 06-09-2014 11:52 AM

I figure mine are going to be good for about 35,000 or so.

Robb03 06-13-2014 12:39 PM

I have 23k on my summer only tires and they are all but done. prob 3-4 mm left and they are useless hooking up anywhere. I am stupid loose in warm temps until 60 mph at WOT. I only open it up a few times a week. Going to a 285 tire next.

Slow*Jim 06-14-2014 01:59 PM

I replaced mine around 25k. The fronts were fine but the rears were pretty much bald.

vistabluevert 06-14-2014 06:42 PM

I had 34,900 on my tires. Just the other day, immediately after exiting the Interstate, the front right tire exploded and blew out. Rather harrowing experience--given that I was just cruising upward of 70 MPH a few minutes before. Most of the sidewall was shredded. Tires were 7 years and original to the car. I've been waiting for the day to replace the tires since I got the car, as I will be up-sizing the wheels to 18's. As far as tires, I debated between reinstalling the P Zeros or Michelin Pilot AS/3s. I've decided to go with the Pilots this time.

On 3rd set of tires, 80k out of the Pirellis, 60k 1st set of pzeros, have 30k on current set of pzeros and they look like they have a half-life left. And yes, I am old and don't drive as I used to...lol..Just turned 172k on an 06 GT and car still runs like a top.

On cooler days I'm not real impressed with the traction of the Pirelli's either. I get a little buggy on fast corners and worry about slide.

I'll likely go with Michelin's when I'm ready for new shoes.

tbear853 06-22-2014 10:57 PM

I noticed some new cracking or "checking" in the rubber at the bottoms of the tread grooves on the date coded 3107 Perelli P-Zero Neros that were OEM on our '08 Mustang GT. We got the car last June, tires were easily 1/2 still there at 22,000 miles, but they had no cracks then. Since then, they've worn some and developed cracks in all 4. No more Perelli P-Zero Nero s for me.

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.
