Why the Fook are my Michelen Pilot Sport 4S showing 6 Mil after only 1200 steady miles??

Actually went back to supplying dealer to check then out, quite surprised to see that new tyres ( not identical) range from 6-7,3 mil , didn’t see an 8 mil on new tyre and also witnessed that my (and there’s) digital readers are Crap compared to manual gages

have agreed to monitor over next 1000 miles :confused:

Don't the MPSS tyres have the same initial tyre tread depth of ~7mm?

Given how much these tyres cost us it’s Quite bizarre how random these treads are on new tyres TBH , we checked numerous and no 2 were the same :confused:

Will have a star after the tyre size Nick, but doublecheck, because the tyre size is written twice on the tyre wall, but only one tyre size has the star after it :thumbsup:

I checked my Pirelli's after BMW said they were 7mm, they were not, 8mm all round.
I would check you got the "star Michelin's" if not they may wear quicker, just a thought.

Hello mate

As said, my 2 new rear MPS4S in my garage have 8mm across all three wider grooves and 6.5mm on the thinner groove towards the outer sidewall.

They weren't measuring the thinner groove were they ?

Then why do we buy these cars. May as well have a 320D. :)
We wait till we can blast them but not every trip, I can only blast too 79 MPH every day, the high speed is an occasion IMO.
It's still an event just driving them.

Absolutely John but no need for Nick to be so tight with his tyres.
