I paid $749.80 for the Kumho ASXs installed, balanced, taxes in, and got 41k out of them. Could have gotten more had I not had to install my winters.

If the Falcons get 20-30k on them, they'll cost me over $1200 for similar mileage.

It all depends on the driver.
20-30K I will say will be in Mystikal world where all 4 tires wear out evenly in one season without rotating. I don’t know anyone that goes thru tires that fast.
The tires do wear out fast, any tire that goes on Jays car in spring grantees to be balled before winter starts.
I drove my just a little over 20k last summer and my tires still got 75% thread on it.

I’m buying another set to store because we are going stop the whole falken line. Stupid Corps.

I found them to be great tires on the e30. Currently have them on my dads S70 T5 and they are great.

LOL, yeah, I usually don't quote mileage without the specific note that I AM NOT A NORMAL PERSON. And FWIW I did kill a set of ZE-512's in one season, with only one auto-x...24,000km I think I squeezed out before wear bars. And no, I never rotated them once and they wore evenly...if everyone drove their cars properly this should be normal.

HAHA, I eat tires that way too. I only got about 20,000 kms out of my Ziex's, but that included a couple track days. I actually wore the shoulders out before the inside, so I had lack-of-camber wear
