Default How many miles did you get out of your Michelin OEM tires?

Like to find out how many miles forum members are getting out of their Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires before needing to replace them.

Stingray? Z51? Gs? Z06? PS Cup 2? Too many variables.

Still have my original fronts. I’ve got 34k miles, but they come off from Halloween to May 1st.

Only OEM tires I had on a C7 were on my '14 Z51, bought new with 3 miles on it.

Got just short of 21K out of 'em and that included the miles on the 2014 NCC

Based on current wear at 7500 miles I'm expecting 16k front, 20k rear with inside wear being greater than outside. I just had a street alignment done where it was discovered that negative camber was high and thus not conducive to good tire wear, so I'm hoping the wear patterns of these tires will improve.

My 16 Z06 13444 miles fronts were wore out to much toe had alignment at 10000 miles,
had 2 or 3 thousand miles left. Replaced with Mich AS3’s that’s when I found out I had 3 bent/warped wheels ordered new ZR1 forged wheels in chrome. I just had them put on had less than 300 miles on tires. Really like the tires and wheels car rides better in cold temps and has better cold traction no tire noise.

21700 on originals. Even wear so far, but I'm not expecting more than 27k or so based on wear bars.

MPSS ZP On the Z51 we have been averaging 8K-9K a set

MPSS ZP On the Z06 we got 9K on the first set

Even if we eliminated the occasional burnout I doubt the way we drive we can get to 12K

Comparing the base 18/19" wheels to Z06 Cup2's is the ultimate "apples to oranges" comparison.
There is even a difference in tread compound between the 18/19 base tires and Z51's.

If people will list what tires they have and give a comment on their driving style, this thread will be much more useful.

Our 2017 Z51 has 20k miles, split about equally between the factory PSS and Michelin A/S3+ ZP tires.
Occasional autocrossing but mostly road trips.
Estimate the PSS will last 25k unless I start doing more autocross, and the A/S3+ about 35k.

Factory PSS on base 2016 Stingray. 26,400 when I traded it in. All road trip driving, coast to coast, except for once on the track at NCM. I would have continued to drive them for at least 2K more miles.

All is going well. Let's use the code word "spirited driving". It's not the easiest on my tires.
Too many vacant curvy and straight roads around here where you can see for miles and miles.
I can't resist that Performance Timer!

My 2014 Z51 coupe was born on 1/21/2014 and last August going home from “CARLISLE” the sidewall on the right front blew out running 85 MPH with no ill effects on the handling,mileage was 29120 and the rear tires still had tread above the wear bars,drove the car the next 67 miles to my shop with no air in the right front tire,proof of guality and technology in today’s Corvettes!
