Tire wear data

I searched and found no real data on tire wear experience. If you have worn out (not damaged) a tire or tires, please tell us how many miles it/they delivered. Please include operating conditions such as where (road materials and surface makes a difference); whether you checked and maintained tire pressures recommended by BMW (or other tire pressures selected by you); average loads, and anything else that you wish to share. Thanks.

even if you get really high perf tires they should last 20-25 thousand

I got about 25000 commuting (mostly) miles on 2 sets of PS2's on an E36 M3

I had these same tires (non run-flats) on my '04 TL and at 15,000 miles, there was significant wear on them, at least half the tread was gone, and since I hated the tires to much, I had them replaced with Pirelli P-Zero Nero's.
For some reason, they weren't great at all on the TL, but they don't seem all too bad on the E90.

Thanks guys. My post was prompted by someone who has read complaints somewhere about tire wear specific to Bridgestone run flat tires all season tires on E90 cars. I am trying to determine if there is anything to the story circulating elsewhere. My E90 has over 7000 miles and the tires look good so I am inclined to believe that the problem(s) reported elsewhere are not tire or car related.
