They were two old Goodyear Wranglers. Ran them on a Jeep cherokee. I took it to and from Galveston quite a bit. Like I said, Iím not advising anyone to go against manufacturer recommendations, but you gotta wonder if they throw that out there so youíll come back and see them sooner than later

I was focused on motorcycles. I stand behind my practice and suggest the same for others.

For cars, I use 5 years.

replace at ~0.09 to 0.10" total depth. I run 55 miles one way to work 90% freeway and 50% of that at 70+ mph. I find when tires get below that you have real problem in wet conditions at speed.
