    Has anyone replaced a set of the OEM Michelins due to wear (i.e. not because you just wanted something else) yet? If so, how many miles did you get out of them, and under what macro level driving conditions?

    Just got our MS so I can't tell you the wear time on this car, but we had the same tire on our old Mercedes and it lasted around 40K miles if I remember correctly.

    Aren't they MXM4 tires on the car from the factory?

    Got about 25k from my first set. I'm almost 25k into the second set and have a little less than 4/32 left, so these will last me a bit more, but not much. I'm guessing they'll last about 30k or so.

    I have ~38,000 on my pair on the front , - I already replaced the rear -- the tech told me I may have set a record....(my wife drives the white P85 like Ms. Daisy). I only made it 8000 miles on the rears in the P85+ on 21's...

    At 40,000 km (25kmiles) I was measured at 6-7/32 both front and rear. Should get me to 50,000 km /32k miles. Guess maybe I goose it a bit more than drrex1 (187 Wh/km or 300 per mile since new).

    I have 26k on my 1st set. Avg wh/mi is at 304. Tires still have about 40% remaining. I do a LOT of "quick starts"

    The grin is constant in my car!

    I'm at 25,000 miles with my Primacies and service told me that tires have about half the wear left.

    I got about 45k miles out of my set of Michelin 19" MXM4 [corrected--I had posted MXV4]. I'm on my second set now.

    Did Tesla use MXV4 tires before the MXM4? Mine came with MXM4, which appear to be rated for slightly lower tread life at 45k miles compared to the MXV4 which are 60k (I think)

    Oops, sorry for the confusion, Zarwin. I cut & pasted without realizing my error. My tires are Michelin 19" MXM4.
