I think I need to change my rear tyres.

One seems to have a slow leak.

I have done 27k on them, is that good bad or average?

Bridgestone on C4S

Thanks

That is terrible. I would get the car checked over to see if there is a problem with the engine.

Surprised Surprised Surprised



The pedal on the right is the accelerator Thumb


Joking aside, that is the longest/highest mileage I have heard of since becoming a 911 owner. I get 6k from the rears, changed at 3mm though.

Great.

I may have looked at the wrong receipt for when I last changed them so it could be less...

Sorry to ask but have you looked at the inside 20% ? My C2 had perfectly good 4mm outer edges...the insides however looked like Egyptian mummy skin they were that bauld! Maybe the air is going out of the weave.

27k is miraculous. What is the 4 digit date code on them?

I normally get around 5k miles out of ps2’s. Could be we have different driving styles. My 996 has directional headlights like more modern cars. It is activated by oversteer Very Happy

Has anyone told you what the pedal on the right does?

I go through them so quickly, that I now buy them in bulk lol.

I know its not a sports car but my VW Transporter has done 50,000 miles on its original Hankook tyres.

I have driven it carefully and I swapped the tyres around at 30k including the spare and they have 2.5mm on them still.

8 to 10k on my C4S is the norm. Always run conti's. 27k is astounding, but I also remove at 3mm.

Bridgestones go to awful rock hard tyres with a bit of age to them.

Get booked onto an airfield day and then some new tyres afterwards.
