GTR Tyre Wear thoughts

Well after 9000 miles only of road only driving decided it was time to get some new tyres. Have added a couple of photo's of the old tyres. Cold pressure of these always been at 29psi. Its a 2013 year model std.

Is this the normal expected tyre wear for GTR?

You driving with bridgestone/dunlop or michelin pilot super sports?

You'll find the latter makes for a less bumpier ride and more stable in the wet weather.

Dunlop and just replaced with Dunlop. I thought long and hard about what next but now the Dunlops are available at a similar price to Mpss I think I'll put up with slightly harder ride and extra skid marks in the wet!!!!!!!!

Not sure if I've ever managed 9000 miles on any tyre...on any car for that matter!
You've done well sir.

Having put MPSS on a few months ago, I would def go back to Dunlops if they can be had for the same price. Really not keen on the squidgyness of the MPSS. It's an unnerving feeling to say the least.

I'd get your geometry checked for good measure now you have a new set of tyres.

Nothing wrong with them.I got 18k miles out of my first set of dunlops,partly due to waiting quite a few months for Camskil to get the correct size mpss i wanted in. Admittedly the rears were completely slick with wire showing in places which made the car 'entertaining' to say the least in the wet!

Rick, the wear looks completely normal, exactly the same as my many sets lol, and I also get 8 or 9k miles from a set.
