M3s have been known to wear out their tires in 15,000 miles. Boxsters are known to wear through a set of tires in about 12,000 miles. i've heard that Acura NSXs can mow through a set of rubber in 7,000 miles or less. what street cars do you know of eat tire rubber like it's going out of style?

Cars with mad torx and staggered sticky wheels/tires (can't be rotated) seem to eat tires quickly, especially if driven with some enthusiasm.

Some vehicle ate through tires quickly due to basic suspension/alignment issues (some early 350Zs, 4x4 Tundra/Sequoya).

Did any front wheel drive car have this issue?

Well if you wanna get technical, FWD bias and eats em up pretty good:

I destroyed two sets of Falken 912's in less than a year with my '91 Si...mainly from just beating the crap out of it on the streets. The car had practically no power but I had tons of fun sliding that thing around the rough streets of SF :D



I'm sure you could go 30,000 miles on a set with this car, but when you push every onramp and turn to tire screeching glory, you gotta expect premature wear. btw the car was aligned properly, too.
