Rapid Tire Wear
This is my first Subaru. I purchased a new 2016 Subaru Forester in August of 2015 from the local Subaru dealer in Ann Arbor, MI. I currently have 47,760 miles on the vehicle and I am on my second set of tires. My first set of tires, Bridgestone tires that were on the car when purchased were wore out at 21,500 miles. I replaced these tires with Micheline Defenders - 90K mileage warranty. I took my car in for service today and was told I only had 3/32 of thread left on my rear tires and 6/32 left on my front tires. This was after the dealer rotated the tires. So, it looks as though I will not get much more than approximately 30,000 mies on a pair of tires that is guaranteed for 90K.
When I mentioned the premature tire wear to the service representative at the dealer he looked at me as if he had never heard of this before. I cannot believe I am the only one experiencing this excessive tire wear.
I Know how I drive and I am not one who would be characterized as a driver who puts excess wear on tires by poor driving habits. If alignment issues are the problem then I would have to say the car came to me that way as a new vehicle.
