You're right though, there are lots of "normal" cars being driven "normally" and many of those will get 10 years out of a set of tyres. Funnily enough my missus had a Civic Type R and we changed the factory tyres at 7 years (30k miles, Bridgestone RE040) not because they were worn to limit but because they were like concrete - they'd lost all flexibility and had started to crack apart. They had ceased to grip in the dry and were lethal in the wet.
