Default 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.

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.

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?

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

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.
