I've got 40,000 miles out of my Mazda 6's factory-fitted Bridgestone Turanza tyres.

I read with interest PH's email regarding getting only 20,000 miles out of the front tyres of his Mondeo. I've just changed the front tyres on my 2008 Mazda 6 Estate and the car has done 40,000 miles on the factory fitted Bridgestone Turanza ER300 215/50 R17 tyres. The rear tyres are still going strong

Many thanks. That's very good. PM of Fleet reported 60,322 miles from the Dunlop DT20 Grandtrek All Season tyres on his Nissan X-Trail. Tyres often last longer on 4WDs because, unlike cars, most are properly laser aligned by the factory, Mitsubishi L200s go through a complex articulated alignment at the end of the production line
