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.

Vehicle commonly driven by my wife everyday - kids to school, errands, to the gym, etc... Great ride, really smooth, but need to be replaced after only 32K miles, kind of a disappointment on a 70K rated tire. Then again, for the price, guess I should be happy that they have lasted as long (purchased on 2 Jul 13) as they have. Would not recommend for anyone that drives more than 10K a year - not worth even the minimum investment...
