What is the treadwear life of stock tires?

Traditionally, I rotate my tires by crossing the front tires to the rear, and shooting the rear tires straight to the front. Balancing occurs every 5k miles. Although, I was getting my tires (re)balance due to some bouncing on the freeway. Comes to my service advisor's attention, that my tires are reaching about 4/32 to 3/32 of treadwear left. I have almost 24k miles right now. Is this normal for tires to last that short of time? What have you all driven w/ the stock tires? If replaced, what do you suggest/recommend?

we are at about 32,000 on ours and i'll probably need new ones before the snow flies so i'd say 35-40,000 tops. it has never been off road and is babied so i don't know if that is the difference.

just changed mine bang on 30,000 miles, still had a little tread left but felt with the wet roads that we enjoy so much in the UK worth doing. Kept to the same tyres...£120 each just for the record!

My Jeep has about 36,000 miles and my tires are getting pretty close to the wear bar. I would like a tire that last longer than around 40,000 miles and that does not cost $180, does anyone suggest another tire than stock.

Also, I have heard that Goodyear's Silent Armor tires are supposed to last longer than the basic Fortera's, is this true?

I have 34k on my 06 and the tires need replacing. I am going to look at LT245/70R17 Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revos. These are just a little bigger than stock and I believe, from what I read here on the forum, they will fit just fine on stock rims with no lift.

Why would you go with a bigger tire?

Goodness.... tell me it isn't so. I was looking up prices via Discount Tires (tires.com), and the OEM Goodyears we have, says it comes w/ a 60K mile warranty. Did I miss the fine print somewhere. It's so odd that I'm barely reaching 24k miles, and yet, Discount Tires said my tires were nearing the 3 to 4/32 mark . I'm assuming I'll have these replaced by 30k. I just need to start saving 'again' for these bad boy investments...any recommendations, and/or suggestions to avoid?!?

All tire companies give their tires above the average warranty mark. This is a selling point for them. Most people don't know this, but you can ask for a pro rate towards new tires since almost all tires did not meet their warranty.
I still can't believe that the stock tires only lasted around 40,000 miles at the most. I am willing to pay for a longer lasting tire, but not one that will last the same mileage as stock.
