are OEM tires made differently?
I just replaced my OEM Geolandar G91s after only 30,000 miles as they were all, despite regular rotation and proper inflation, worn to the nub. The guy at the shop said that OEM tires wear earlier because they are made softer than other tires of the same, exact model, to make a softer and more pleasant test drive for potential buyers. Not sure if I buy that, or not, but these did need replacing much earlier than they should have. Curious if that sounds plausible, or not.
FYI, with snow season coming, I could no longer wait to see if Yokohama would introduce a 225/60/17-sized G015, so went with the AT-S.
