I'm at 50,4xx miles and I'm at 3/32 all around. I have the standard 18s with the Michelin Lattitudes. I've been pretty happy with them. Turn in isn't spectacular but they've been predictable and reasonably comfortable. Despite a previous post on tramlining, my previous car, a 14 Mustang GT tramlined like a champ with its stock Pirellis. These tires have been NOTHING like that. That being said, I'm a cheapskate as I drive 35k+ miles a year and will be putting these on my Firestone card. So I'm trying to chose between the Destination LE2s, the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopias, and.......the Firestone Firehawk AS. The Firehaks are listed as an option on tirerack, even though they are not stated to be suv/truck tires. I think tirerack's system wont let you pick tires that don't meant the weight/sidewall requirements of your vehicle if you search that way (which I did). I wouldn't mine a bit of sportier handling as long as the tirewear tradeoff isn't too bad. My head says go with the Bridgestones as they should last the longest (60,000 rated) but I just worry they'll numb up the driving experience. We have Destination LE2's on my wife's '15 Yukon XL and they've not been remarkable in any way.

My '15 MKC just rolled 24,000 miles. However, at the last oil change in January they noted the tread at only 4/32 on all four tires with only 22,900 miles on the car and the line "they need replaced" It came with the 19" Michelin Latitude Tour HP. To say the least I was surprised, Wasn't expecting to have to change tires before lease turn in (Dec 17) I looked on Tire Rack as well. I'm thinking Hankook or General's I hate to say it, but I'm turning it in, I want to do this as inexpensively as possible. It annoys me to buy tires and then give it back, so I'll be buying these this month or next so I can get a little use out of them -
