33,000 miles on my OEM Michelins so far, they will easily go to 40,000 miles with the rubber left. Not sure why some are having accelerated wear?
Thats great for OEMs! My OEM Ecopias didn't even make 20k before going bald
but my Costco aftermarkets of the same tire are currently sitting at 40k and other than one looking very bad with a crack ring all around the outside edge 1" inside the tread of the drivers rear and overall worse wear than the rest, the other 3 look quite good. I will not ever be purchasing Bridgestone tires again though, Michelines for me as I've had better luck with those, Bridgestones are generally cheaper and I believe there is a reason.
I've never seen a crack like on my 1 Ecopia, really weird and definitely must be a factory defect but as they are 6?? years old I probably don't have much of a leg to stand on. Still I have a set of Michelines on my X-19 that are probably 30?? years old and not a crack to be seen. I know new bike tires are crap for the most part, crack badly after only a few years and again I have some on my old racing bike that are again 30+ years old and still look better than crap I purchased less than 5 years ago for a newer bike that are all cracked, really pitiful IMO.
