    How many miles did you get or are you getting out of your factory Goodyear tires on 20” wheels?

    I’m at 24k and they are pretty worn. The wear seems even. I’ve rotated the tires twice (once per oil change).

    Is this normal? Is it from me driving it hard? I would expect more out of all-season truck tires...

    Thanks in advance!

    Seems about right with what others get out of them.theyre fairly chitty tires. They're cheap and light though.

    I got about the same mid 20s out of my stock Goodyear's that I had on my 2014. I'll be happy to get 20 out of my Firestone's on my new truck.

    They were crap the day they left the lot. I got 4000km on mine before I couldn’t stand them anymore.

    I just upgraded to coopers. I had almost 34000 miles on the SRA's. Tires wear on these trucks because most of us set the pressure according to the door sticker which is fine if you're driving with a load in the bed but the backs are over inflated at those pressures when empty. That causes them to wear more in the center of the tread. I just did the chalk test and found that my back tires want to be 3 psi lower than the sticker says. If you don't know what the chalk test is search " tire chalk test" on youtube.

    I squeaked out a little over 30,000 miles on the SRAs, about that with Falken Rockys, I have 17,000 so far with Cooper Discover ATs, wearing nicely, my expectation from these rated 55,000 mile tires is 40,000 miles, I only put on about 3,000 miles per year since I retired and go to school, should be good for awhile, the SRAs for their replacement value at $200 each are a ripoff IMHO.
