I've been doin' some tire research (M/T and A/T) for my 2008 GMC Sierra Crew Cab (OEM 20's) and I'm looking for info on tire mileage in particular. I couldn't find a comprehensive thread on the subject, so I figured I'd start one here. So, feel free to leave your info based on these parameters:

1) Vehicle (Year, Make, Model, Etc.)
2) Leveling Kit or Lift Kit Size / Brand / Trimming?
3) Tire (Brand and Model)
4) Tire Size
5) Mileage


I'll start with my last set:

1) 2001 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 Ext. Cab
2) No level or lift / No trimming
3) Bridgestone Dueler A/T REVO
4) 285/75/16
5) 55,000 miles

Thanks in advance to any and all participants. I think this could a great resource for folks that are lookin' for tire related info. Also, the parameters I listed were off the top of my head. So, feel free to add to them if need be.

Most people on here change tires like I change my underwear (every couple months), so they don't know what mileage they can get out of tires.

Well... Even if people don't see the end of the road with a set, a listing of what they've gotten or an (honest) estimate of what they think they could have gotten would suffice as well... Thanks for the responses...

25K before I sold it and they looked like they could have gone another 25K no problem.

They wheeled great in mud and rocks, too. I know because I broke everything on that truck wheeling, tree through the trans, snapped 2 front brake lines, front and rear pinions, paint scratched to hell from tight Jeep trails in Colorado, jumped it a bunch, too. I drove it like it was a Military H1 and I was invading the Rocky Mountains. Good tires, I'd buy them again in a heart beat.

1) 2002 GMC Sierra ecsb 4x4
2) Stock
3) Mainly 3 different brands/models.
4) 245-75-16
5) Usually 50,000.

It came stock with Goodyear Wrangler ST, IIRC. They were P-series and I ran them around their maximum 45psi. I got at least 45,000 out of those and replaced them before they were down to the wear bars. Then I put on some tires that were rotting on another truck in the yard. They were LT-series, load range E; I ran them at 70-80psi. Got more than 50,000 from them, and again didn't run them down to the wear bars (winter was approaching). I ran some miscellaneous used tires for probably 25,000, and then got some Nexen brand, model might be Roadhandler, LT-series. Ran those at 70-80psi, it's at least 50,000 miles later, and they're pretty worn. These are the first tires that have ever had measurable center wear from my high-pressure inflation tactics, but it's not extreme. When the edges get down to the wear bars the center won't be bald.

Sometimes I take curves fast, and I like to kick out the rear on sandy turns.

1. 2005 ECSB Silverado 1/2 ton 4x4
2. 6" procomp and 3" body lift
3. 35" BFGoodrich Mud Terrains (KMs)
4. I drive like a pissed off teenager and these tires still have tread at 37k miles. There's enough tread to take me into the low 40s and there's no doubt in my mind I could have gotten 50 out of them had I driven slowly and not spun the tires.
