I bought a 2005 ACURA TL certified preowned in late August 07 with 39,000 Miles on it.

Well the car has about 50K on it now as of today and I need 4 new tires.

I am ready to order new ones however, shouldn't my tires last more than 10-11K miles especially all 4 of them? I have no problem buying new ones at all but before I do, I just wanted to get thoughts. Should Honda/Acura replace my tires at little or no charge because of the short period of time and low milage i've driven?

Also about 9-10K of that driving has been turnpike to work, 30 miles each way.

I'm not big into cars so I have no clue and could care less either way about buying new one so I figured i would ask the experts

Should last much longer than that BUT its all based on how hard the rubber is and what quality the tire is. Just use the general rule of thumb--put a penny in the tread of the tire and if you can see the top of Lincoln's head, you need new ones.

The tires wouldn't have been replaced when you bought the car - they would have been original tires. Tires, when rotated, and properly inflated could go as long as 60K.

So, you wanted advice, but not my advice, or the advice I gave?

research your model of tire.

50k is stretching it on a tire thats oem especially on an acura or honda.
