Default How many miles/years out of a set of tires?

Anyone have a ballpark idea of the mileage expectation of golf cart tires?

It's all over the board..........

My wife's New Avalon lasted 30,000 miles. Seems like OME tires don't last as long.

My last four SUV's.............80,000 to 95,000 miles.

Also depends on care (alignment, pressure, etc.) and hiway vs. city driving.

Conservative: take 80% of the tire rating.

A lot depends on if you keep the tires properly inflated and the golf cart properly aligned, inflation appears to be the most important one.

Our golf cart is five years old, we are here full time and use the golf cart regularly. While we don't have an odometer, a wild guess we use about 4 gal of gas in our cart per month.
A guess 40 mpg so 160 miles a month so aprox 2,000 miles a year.

We have the original dealer tires and they are about half worn. We have ten inch tires. I seem to recall reading somewhere that the ten inch tires last far longer on the road as the rubber is harder as well as fewer revolutions per mile.
