Comment:
I have a 2012 Honda civic with firestone affinity tires. The majority of my miles are highway. I am getting ready to purchase my 1st set of tires at the end of November. I will have 83,000 miles on my 50,000 mile rated tires. I must be doing something wrong. I rotate my tire every 10,000 miles.

very disappointed that tires rated at 70,000 miles will need replaced at about 54,000 miles. False advertising!

1st time I bought these.70,000 mile tread? I bought the tires 10 months ago. I have rotated them once. I put 19,000 miles on them and the fronts are bald. I know that if I bring them back, I will be told the alignment is bad. But that bad? I mean the car rides perfectly straight if I let go the wheel. I've seen uneven tread wear before but never bald this fast. If this is how bad the tread wear will be on a new tire,and there is no forgiveness to a car that might be a bit out of alignment, I'd recommend the dealers start checking aligment before issuing the warranty to begin with. I've never had this problem with any other tire I've bought including other Firestones. Very disappointed.
