There are 2 main issues leading tyres to wear fast.
1. wrong tyre pressure, bad steering calibration, bad suspensions and accidents (even a slight diference between before the crash and after it comes from the shop, can lead to absolute madness on tyre and fuel consumptions);
2. people with absolute no idea on how to turn corners, how and when to accelerate and brake.
i know every1 thinks he's/she's top driver with absolut no foults when driving and every1 else is just stupid.
my other half owns a 320d BMW and her tyres use to wear out after 20k km (12.4k miles) which is absolutly unacceptable for those michelin tyres (don't remember the model). after a while i notice some faults on her driving skills so we worked it out and now she drives "like a pro". same tyre same car same driver but only now they do almost 45k km (28k miles). plenty more exemples to post but you'r geting the idea!
i'm a firefighter driver, so i drive big and old diesel trucks with absolute no assists (yep no assists at all including some with no steering assist, welcome to Portugal) and even i know i'm not a pilot, just because you'r driving fast or even slow doesn't mean your doing it right...most of the times the car is doing all the work for you without you even realise it( with all the electronis and such)!!!!
tyre advice by the way, Pirelli PZero for dry weather and Eagle F1 asymetric, Nichelin PilotSport ps3 for all weather conditions (bouth just stick to the road on wet weather).
you want your tyre/fuel to last longer get a class on defensive driving skills, you`ll have to pay for it but it can realy improve your driving atitud (skills). wich leads to tyre/fuel economy (and suspensions and parasit noises and...you get the idea)
pilots out there start the flaming!!!
