Mein Auto: X3
I don't think I could handle replacing tires every 20k to 30k. I would be burning through tires every six months. A/S are a good enough compromise considering I am a high speed hwy super commuter. Luckily I do this in California where really extreme weather conditions only exist if you seek them out.

Now as a side note the best milage I ever got on a set of tires was 102k miles. They were Toyo 800 ultras on a gmc. They sold me on them because they had a 100k mile warranty and the engineer in me wanted to prove them wrong. A little over two years later they had 102k miles on them and still 1/4 tread left. I only replaced them because it was winter and was worried about wet traction. Not particular awesome tires at anything but hwy comfort and wear. It's a shame you can't buy those any longer....although they are not tires I would use in my x3.
