Default 20K miles on Pirelli P-zero's. Fail

These are what my pirelli's looked like when I pulled my tires. The worse of the two finally gave out on me. Switching to Extreme Contacts, with a 50k warranty.

Those look like a summer tread tire. Most with decent handling characteristics won't last more than 20-30K and most also won't give a mileage warranty for that specific reason.

You also have too much negative camber, thus the excess wear on the inside.

If those are summer tires, I certainly hope you didn't drive them in freezing temps? That kills them as it hardens/crystallizes the compounds and makes them microcrack...

That's good wear for a summer tire. IF they are . I only got 19,000 miles out of my 235/50-18 Pirelli All Season tires

You haven't provided any information about your car. Year? GT? Front or rear tires? Lowered at all? Ever rotated?

I'm inclined to think it's more a case of (1) bad toe or (2) bad toe with bad camber
than bad camber by itself.


I doubt that any replacement tire would survive 50,000 miles on your car unless whatever isn't right doesn't get fixed. And don't kid yourself that any tire company would replace tires under warranty if they looked anything like those.
