I've had P6s on my Quantum Syncro for several years now. I love them from
the standpoint of handling and traction (of course, driving all 4 wheels
helps). However, I guess they don't last as long as they could. I seem to
get about 45,000 miles out of them before they either are showing the wear
bars or have succumbed to dry-rot and weather. I probably should have
checked into other tires, instead of always replacing these with more P6s.
