Mileage to tire wear out

How many miles did your stock jk rubicon tires last before they needed to be replaced?

Iv put 19k on mine and a lot of that was 500 miles at a time on 100°+ days. They still have over 3/4 tread on them.

Nittos (32" I think) on 16" rims were on my 2007 Sahara when i saw it with a 2" lift on the showroom floor. I had 64000 miles on them when i traded for my 2012 Rubicon and probably at least another 20000 miles on them. That said, i rotated them every other oil change (about every 6000 miles). Good tire but i think they kept my mileage down a bit. only got @ 16-18 depending on road conditions, wind and rain significantly decreased mileage because of the 3:21s. Think they were just a little big for the gears.

I often wonder how some get so many miles out of their tires while others get so little. Of course driving habits and care play a big part, but when someone says they have 38,000 and plan on getting another 30,000, I'm in awe.

Our SRA's are at 21,000 and I just measured them today. We're at 6/32 front, 5/32 rear. If memory serves me, the new tread depth was 11/32, so if we ran ours bald we'd get 42,000 at most.

Can road conditions really play that big a part? If someone only drove on smooth highway roads, could they really get 60,000 out of a set of tires?

I'm averaging about 36,000 out of any tire I've had on any car (non-scientific study).

Kudos to those that can eclipse the 40k mark.

Great reply. My tire life is similar to yours on past vehicles. I assume that more expensive tires last longer. Makes sense.

I bought the rubi with 35,800 and now have 38,000. I assuming these are the stockers, I could be wrong. If they are another 30 would not be out of the question.

I would assume mud tires or AT's having more tread depth would last longer ?

A lot has to do with the rubber compounds used. Some (especially mud tires) are softer compounds which wear quickly on road. A/T's are pretty much middle of the road, and then street tires vary according to their usage as well. Some are very soft and sticky for performance usage, while others are a bit more firm for daily driving.

Lying her thinking, my spare is not new, wondering if the PO rotated the spare in as well? That would add to the life.
they do look great for near 40,000

Do you regularly rotatate your tires? A 5 tire rotation every 5 to 6K will insure long tread life.

That blows

Bought the 16" Moabs for my Tj, IMO they are the best looking stock rims.
I see them in the classifieds all the time. People ask and offers are made a lot through WF.
You will find a set

Be careful with money to burn on your JK. It will come again and again. Take a week or two off to keep reading up on tire and wheel combos. You'll be amazed at how quickly your "made up mind" can change when you learn more and more. Research...research...research.

Thats the plan. Hoping to run into a fair deal along the way. My main issue: trying to stay commuting friendly while attempting to get a thick wide footprint.

You are right. Research research research.

Truer words have never been written...... That right there is the voice of experience...

Ask ESP how many sets of tires he's owned since he's had his JK....

We were discussing it Yesterday.

You can't go wrong with 5 rims and BF's for around $750.
Sometimes they will fly for less. If they are newer takeoffs I would not think twice about paying that. Selling your stocks if in good shape will lessen the cost also..
