    I think I replaced mine at about 30,000. They would have gone farther than that but why push it. During an emergency maneuver or stop tire condition will determine your fate.

    I've got 26K miles and they need to go soon. The dealer told me when I bought it that they often get 40K miles before they need to be replaced.

    i would say around 30-35K is average. I had around 32K on my Goodyear wrangler MTR's before I sold the truck. I would say they would have gone to 40K easily
