M6GC Tire Longevity

I'm considering buying an M6 GC, and I couldn't find this info on the forums. For those who've had their car for awhile, how many miles do you get out of a set of Michelin PS4S(or similar)? Obviously this will vary greatly due to driving styles. I'm just trying to get a rough estimate so I can budget appropriately, since a set of tires for this car aren't inexpensive. Thanks!

Im sure other who track will have different answers but my first set was ready for replacement at 20k, and it was driven normally on a stock setup.

For 80% sport driving 20% normal driving ,
It last long at least 2 years for rear. For front may take more I assume 3 years at least. Between 20k - 30k miles for set i guess. I hope it help u.

Thanks. This is very helpful and reassuring. I was worried the answers would closer to 10k. So as long as you don't drivr like Ken Block all day everyday, you can actually get some decent mileage out of a set of tires.

I bought Michelin PS4S with about 80% thread and they only lasted about 9-10k miles. The 30 aspect ratio in the rear barely come with any rubber lol. My front's have about 15k miles on them and I can squeeze out another 5k out of them.
