Re: 159 Ti Tyre Wear!!!!
Again, useful feedback from the Alfisti.
Yes, the rears are the one's that are slick and in a front wheel drive car that's excessive. I have had two fronts replaced at 6,000 miles. One blew out on a pothole (at 35mph!) which also buckled my wheel and the other got damaged driving over a raised manhole cover at about 10mph! That's the problem with such low profile tyres.
That said, the fronts are good after 6,000 miles each. Wear is even and would expect those to go at around 18,000. But not the rears. And due to the poor fuel economy and high miles I do, it's all motorway which isn't exactly demanding on tyre wear.
