I have a similar question.  I use two sets of tires on
my S4.  The Michellins that came with the car for the
summer (May-Nov) and Dunlop for the winter.

I was at the dealer last Saturday and he looked at my
summer tires and said that I probably have another 5k
miles left on them!!!  Shoot, I only have about 15-18k
miles on my summer tires at the most.  Is this normal?

I thought they were suppose to last at least 30k
miles.  And I do not race my car.

Any thoughts?
