Assymetric 2 Tyre wear

Post by toadster » Mon Jan 07, 2019 5:55 pm

Hi Peops :D
I'm getting two of My Ludes tyres replaced as the band is starting to show on the inside of one of them.
They have been on the car for 3 1/2 years and tread is down to 3mm.
The other two have 6mm left on them.
They have covered 30k.
All four were fitted at the same time and obviously it's the fronts that have worn the most.
I'm going to fit assymetric 3 as they seem to have slightly better ratings on wear and comfort than the 2's.
What do you guys think of the performance of My tyres over that time is it about normal ?
Cheers ;)

I should note I'm on assymetric 2 on my van. So tyre wear is very much vehicle dependant. 2.4 tones of van.

Eagle F1's are a great tyre.

How much are you paying for them, if you don't mind me asking?
