Not sure how you could wear out a set of tires in that distance.

My tires had 16/32" of tread when new. Today with 37,000 miles on them, the average depth is between 10 and 11/32". With that, I will probably have to replace them at 7 years or 70,000 miles. They should still have close to 1/3 of their original depth, but I won't run a tire more than that. I don't know if a lessor tire would run that far with the weight of our coach.

I should add that to get the maximum usefull mileage from my tires, I monitor pressure and wear closely. The steer tires carry the most weight and are within 500# of their maximum capacity. The tags carry less than half of their max capacity. To get the most out of the set, I recently had the steer and tag tires dismounted and switched. The drive axle tires carry about 65% of their capacity. This along with proper inflation for the load and protecting them from the sun when parked for extended periods, help get the most mileage from my XZA 2 tires.
