The stock tires lasted about 35000 miles which is pretty good for the good years. The coopers I got after that are still on there and again probably have half the tread or more left. I do pretty much all city driving except a few long trips across the country once or twice a year, I haul a lot, I burn out and "race"(screw around) now and again. I don't beat my truck but I just don't see how I have the same pads as someone else and they last 2-3 times as long.

Either way, brake pads are about as easy as changing oil, just do it yourself. You'll learn how to do something new.
My bad years are at 36k and still at 50% tread life. These gawd awful tires REFUSE TO DIE. And I am too cheap to get new ones when these still have tread.
