Well, I just rotated the wifes tires on her M6 wagon. After 5000 miles, the front tires had 8/32's to a tad more, the rears had 9/32nds. I would consider these tires to be wearing extremely well, very quite at speed. They look a little wierd, but seem fairly awesome. The kids are always in the car, so I've never really been able to flog them, maybe someone else can elaborate there.
