How many KM, and sportive style or not?

I had summer tyres wear of in just half a year, but with over 2000 km a week for work alone it goes quickly.
Normal comfort mode, never used the sports mode.....too risky in CH.

Yeah 48,000km would do that! I’d expect you to be on your third set by the end of the summer!
Was only one time, ridiculous to drive Groningen - Amsterdam for work daily, would never have done it if I hadn't have had 3 co-workers in the car also whom paid me their 19 ct per km each while they slept in the car, so including my money I got 0.76 Eurocent per kilometer taxfree and 3 travel hours paid daily, that was a nice "little" extra

(And yes eventually one gets so incredible bored by doing so)

But how many km's? Tyres don't care if they are fresh or 4 years old, they care about how much they are used.

How many km?

Front, rear, or all 4?

What pressure are you running them at?

Winter tyres in hot summer will wear quickly.

Oh yeah,

We bought our car this week, and it still had the winter tyres on. With this heat only a short ride was enough to make it smell like we were burning them off
