Re: Tire wear
I have 23K on my '05 and the BFG tires are doing well. Don't have a
tread depth gauge, but they look less than half worn. I've gotten
excellent performance from Michelin LTX M/S in the past, over 60K. By
the way, Goodrich is a division of Michelin and I know Michelin has a
lot to say about their operation.
