    Tyre wear is all down to the conditions under which the tyre is used correct tyre pressure should be maintained at all times hard acceleration and breaking will reduce service life of the tyre
    if you are mainly doing a steady speed on an open road then your tyres should last longer if your hopping around town from traffic light to traffic light then youll get less miles
