That is pretty much an unanswerable question. Especially when we see mileage anywhere from 5,000 to 40,000 miles out of our tires. The winter tires often come with an extra 1/32" of tread depth so that might be the answer for some. But for some reason I seem to chew up winter tires quickly...but sure would like to try the Mich. Primacy Alpin.

For me it looks like I will get pretty close to the same mileage! Run what you got!:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

Each and every tire is different. Sorry for not clear answer for ya. Tire pressure, riding style, where you ride are also huge factors in wear. As Richard stated 1/32 extra tread depth may help some with wear on winter tire. I am running a Dunnie winter sport down to Tx. In a month (mostly slab) I am going to watch wear very closely to help answer my questions.

I agree.

You may also find a very slight difference in the handling, very slight. :shrug:
