Default Bridgestone RE11 255/35/19 on sale on TireRack.com $199

I'm extremely tempted to buy a set of rear tires just because it's so cheap. I paid $325 each for my rears about 10 months ago...

Or should I switch to Michelin Super Sports? Those are $259..looks like the regular price for them.

The RE11s are a super deal if you're on OEM wheels still.

Just f me how has the tire wear been? Do you feel you will get at least 25k to 30k? I have been looking at these tires, but concern with how fast they will wear out. What about flat spots for sitting to long?

I drive my car pretty hard....lots of acceleration etc. and I get about 30-35k out of the rear tires, and I get about 35-45k out of the front...just gotta keep up on the alignment.

AWESOME tires though. How long do you let your car sit? Get out there and drive it...lol. This is my 3rd set of RE11s that I'm currently on.

Are you running stock sizes?

That tire wear will work for me. I'm still running 4+ year old OE potenza re50 only 26k on them with no complaints. Just trying to squeeze a little more out of them before buying new tires. This price is really good!!

The F will sit all week and RE50 are fine, no flat spots. I know I need to drive it more, but the commute will destroy it! She is about to get driven on a 14hr round trip this weekend!

I like the Super Sports a lot, but for that sale price you found on the RE11s, I'd get those.

Love my RE-11's, can't say how long they really last as I had to replace my rears at 7k because of a couple screws

I've had my fronts on for about 8000 miles though and still have 8/32 of tread left.

Treadwear is relative and is specific to the manufacture's rating. I get 30-35k miles on a 180 treadwear...that's pretty damn good considering these are EXTREME PERFORMANCE SUMMER tires

I just bought a pair of rears myself....too good of a deal on too good of a tire to pass up. I'll just save them
