I lease my 2005 X3 back in April for 3 years 36K and have the standard package 17" rims and bridgestone Turanza EL 42 tire. Will the tire last another year and 10K to 12K miles? I currently have 24K and the tire seems to be good. If I need to replace tire, I will probably replace it now rather then very close to the returning day. Please comment.

Thanks

Obviously the answer is "It Depends" on a lot of factors. But if it helps I have 38,000 on my X3 and the tires aren't even close to the tread wear indicators.

mine lasted until 29500, now I'm getting a new set with 29890 on the speedo.

My Pirelli Scorpions have 28000 and look like they will go on forever. This season, they have pulled my X3 through snowfalls of up to 14".

Congratulations on getting to 38k on your Firestones

we couldn***8217;t stand the noise :mad: from ours so we dumped them at 37k (looked like at least 10k left in them)

Additional info: Our second 4 wheel alignment resolved the cupping problem but by then the Bridgestones were to far gone.

My OEM tires are Pirelli Scorpion's, not Firestones

I think he was just joking, Firestone owns Bridgestone or Bridgestone owns Firestone :)

This is our second set of Firestones, the 1st set came on our 68 Mustang, in 68.
Swore then never again!
We were so excited about getting the X3 that it was 3 or 4 days before I noticed the Bridgestone/Firestones :mad:
It would have been a deal buster!!
