Just been to the dealer for fuel tank check and all 4 tyres measured at 6mm = 31% worn. Hybrid Excel 5000 miles 70% motorway , no wheel spinning. Anyone done over 15000 miles yet?

most front wheel drive cars that i have had would be lucky to get 10 000 miles out of them so thats not bad imo

Have same tires but made not so many miles yet. Dont hope a C-HR eats tires!

Just had second service at 17000 miles, advised to get two new tyres for the front at around £180 each!
The tyre wearI think personally, is abysmal for just ordinary sensible driving when compared with other Toyotas I have owned.

Volvo V4, 190 BHP, fr4ont wheel drive, 20K miles on a set
Toyota GT86, 30K !! miles and even the rears are still fine.
Don't tell me the C-HR is going to need a new set every 15... Doesnt make sense

Rotating every season or year will make all tires wear evenly.. in my opinion a good choice. But at the end you have to replace all 4 tires once..

I changed my front tyres on 26,650 miles, pleased with that, I don't rotate my tyres, mainly because if you don't it staggers the cost.

Hi.
That mileage you quote is more towards what I would have expected.
What tyres was it that gave you that, make, size, model as I would be very interested.
Additionally, what make, model, size did you replace them with.
If anybody else has any thoughts or information re tyre wear at 17000 miles, etc., I would be pleased to hear from you.
Regards.

They were 18" Michelin Primacy 3, I replaced them with the same which I sourced from Germany. they were Demos and cost £86 each

For anyone that doesn't know the web site says "a demo tyre is a tyre that has been fitted and dismounted and that has driven for a few miles at most. In most cases they were used for
Automobile fairs
Quality tests by the manufacturer
Mounted on a vehicle during train/truck trip
Demo tyres benefit from the same manufacturing guarantee, as new tyres. The depth of the tread is at least 99% of the new tread .
Demo tyres are just as good as new tyre, except they are sometimes 10% cheaper than freshly minted tyres."

When they arrived they were as new, still with the feathering on the tread
