    Those with D cars, and 21" wheels, especially who moved from S to D .. do you feel that D cars are wearing the 21" lesser? Or about the same? TIA!

    Yes, the consensus on TMC is that the dual motor cars experience much more even tire wear.

    About 3K miles on my 21x8.5s. Despite -1.5s on the rear cambers, I just measured 13/32nds inside to out on front and rear.(new spec is 10/32nds).

    So yes, it's not a lot of miles yet but it's obvious that I won't experience the 5K miles per set some are reporting plus I get to rotate since I'm square.

    I have about 21K on my 19s and they measure 8/32nds inside to out on front and rear as well.

    Wow, your tires gained 3/32" in tread, regenerative tires! or more tread than spec on yours.
