    Anyone know what the new tread depth is on these tyres?Just got car back from service and average depth on rears is 6.3mm after 3300 easyish miles. Wondering if they are going to last as long as the continentals that I took off.
    Still got continentals on front with 4.5mm after 15000 miles!

    roughly 8mm when new I believe. Fronts will last longer though, its a 400+ bhp RWD car so any comparisons are useless.

    When I had these tyres fitted last year, the tyre guy said that many manufacturers are supplying new tyres with tread depth of 7mm as opposed to 8mm, and the Michelin PS4S are 7mm new. Not sure if that’s true or not...

    They should easily last 4 years then (assuming you don’t lighten up the rears at every round about).

    Yep.

    PS4 come up 8 mm while PS4S come up 7 mm.

    “Less is more” I suppose. :oops:

    The PS4S has lasted for ages on mine so far. My fronts are now 2 years old and have done around 21,000 and are on avg 4mm. My rears are 14 months old and have done about 12,000 and are on avg 4mm also. I'm expecting to get around 28,000 out of the fronts and 18,000 out of the rears.

    They've done incredibly well considering I've done a track day on them and the vast majority of my road driving is fast A roads.

    How do you guys get so many miles from the rears?

    I get ~11k miles from a set of rears and then i’m down to the wear markers.
