Went 42,000 on orig Goodyear
Went 42,000 on orig Goodyear tires, 2006 Prius. New set is Kumho but my mileage has dropped to 43.8-44.2. What is going on??? I always got 47-49mpg
good to hear what this group
good to hear what this group is saying since my experience is similar: my 05 prius just blew a tire at 28500. all of the other tires are practically bare. it never occurred to me to even look--no other car i've owned has ever been a worry below 80K! why does goodyear list 50K life if no one is getting that. i'm annoyed and would love to hear the reason.
My 2006 Prius has totally
My 2006 Prius has totally worn out tires on the insides after perfect maintenence every month for the almost 2 years we've owned the car. The Toyota dealership will take no responsibility for the problem. We are right now putting very expensive tires on in the hope of a safer car. It has to be a design problem. The guy with the 2005 that says he has no problem with his tires....does anyone know if there was a design change from 05 to 06 relating to tire efficiency? Thank you
We have just turned 50,000
We have just turned 50,000 on our 05 prius . The service manager at Toyota told us that one tire was at the minimum tread wear depth of 3 mm the others were at 4mm so we are going to buy a new set. Because of the small size of these tires (more revolutions per mile) 50,000 miles seems like a decent number to get. We don't drive hard and do want to optimize our mileage so we will try to replace these Goodyears with the identical tires . Hope this next set does as well. We did notice the outside edge of these tires seem more worn than the middle of the tread. All tire rotations were done on schedule.
