I've got 18,000+ on the stock Dunlops and I bet I have over 10K of tread left ... they still look really good! This is for 60% freeway driving.

Ya know ... For my daily driven "///M coupe", I cannot complain as much as the rest of you about the Dunlops (aka "Dunflops", "Damnlops", etc). I don't think they're as bad as everyone makes them out to be, especially for a daily driver. Sure ... the Michelins Pilots or S02 Pole Positions will perform better overall, but you really gotta be pushing the envelope (something you should not be doing on the street) to reach the point where you can tell the difference. Overall, I can't complain much about the Dunlops. For track use or some spriited back road driving, I'll just put my Kumhos "Victoracers" on. My thoughts ... FWIW.
