Along the lines of longston;

I knew I had learned something when I hit 30K one one set of tires. Called my Dad and told him he had to buy a set because "if someone who went through a set of tires every three month could go 30K, they must be good tires". That very set of tires went beyond 80K, and the only reason I got a new set was I was taking a driving vacation to Canada, and planned on logging 10K miles.

Tore through many a car and many a tire years ago. Yet, a good spirited run now and again is good for the car and the soul, keeps one young at heart.
