Re: Summer vs. Winter Tire Wear

View Post
How do you know the Contis have worn more? Perhaps the winter tires started with a deeper tread depth?

Summer tires do tend to wear faster. Temperature, driving style, moisture/precipitation, all play a role.
I'm quite sure that the Nokian winters started at 8mm.

The Conti summers, I admit I don't know because it was on the car when bought and first measured only on the change-over. If the Contis started at 6mm, then this explains everything .

I sure understand that tire wear is due to a lot of factors. I just want to know what other experience here.
