How long did your stock tires last?

Everyone, How long did your stock tires last? I have a 2011 Unlimited with 35,000 miles and I already need new tires.

I dumped mine at 9,000 miles. I gave them to a friend for free cuz I didn't like them. He got about 35-40 out of them. Did you rotate properly? I'm at 1/2 tread or so on my new tires and have 45k on them rotated every 5k

That sounds about right for the GY-SR/A
I had about 12000 miles when I sold them. had about 8/32" all the way around on them. They were starting to wear quickly, and I hated them in rain and snow.

GY Duratrac 33's much better !!

I pulled my OEM 18" Duelers at 25000 miles. They still had considerable tread and the dealer gave me considerable trade on Kelly Safaris.

Got Rid of them quickly

Mine lasted from the time I got it to the time I drove it home. Swapped out the tires immediately. I believe I had 30 miles on them.

I'm at 78,000 with whatever came stock on the Rubicon. Maybe one more summer on these. My wife's jeep has 60,000 and hers needs changing this summer.

I had the stock Goodyears on my '08 for 84,000 miles, and they still had enough tread left to get me a little further (not much though).

These Nitto Terra Grapplers are nice, but they're wearing much faster. I'm at 20,000 miles on them and they're about halfway worn.

i dont think it's that bad. when i stick my key lengthwise in the grooves of my spare (never used), it is about the same height as the thread blocks. When I do the same thing with the other tires, about 1/3 of the key is sticking past the thread. Bought the jeep mid july last year, and I have 25k on the stock duellers

Mine made just under 200 miles, before getting used on my trailer.

I had 3 flats in 5200 miles. They have been replaced with trail grapplers. Factory tires are junk.

Time Line

27,300 miles 50% left on BFG KM after one year.
Replace them with BFG KM.
2 weeks later took them off with 700 miles.
Replace them with BFG KM2.

End of story.
