    Re: Tire psi?

    I think the difference is in the nature of our roads -- we tend to do much longer distances on smooth (well.. relatively smooth) interstates that have broad curves, so there is little rubber being scrubbed off the tires.

    I have ~40,000 miles on the Goodyears, and they're about halfway through their tread. It's not an especially sticky tire, but it channels water really well and does OK in light snow.

    I'm still puzzled. A search tells me that the "NCT2" is a flavor of the Eagle line, and that's what came on the Lumina as OEM equipment which (as I stated) went over 60,000 miles before replacement. I am baffled by the disparity.

    Like most others I observe the "tread wear bars" moulded in - when they appear flush with the rest of the tread there is about 1.8mm tread remaining.
