Are you really trying to brag about how much you abuse your vehicle? lol

I know about the laws of physics. I'm sure you don't know much about me but I have an engineering degree so I do know a little...

My point was that even though I don't drive extremely hard and beat the hell out of my truck I do drive hard and burn out and things like that fairly often and I still don't burn through tires and pads. I will say I almost never brake hard, and here in FL there's basically no hills. But as far as tires, I burn out quite a bit. I light my tires up fairly often and they are also nearly 100lb on each corner, and still I'm probably looking at 60-80k miles out of them. I just think it's weird how some people burn through pads/tires and some don't, regardless of conditions. I find it hard to believe you could abuse your truck so much that it would make tire life and brake life decrease by like 75%, and I don't even drive "like a granny". I just don't beat the hell out of it is all.

My last vehicle was an s10 and the firestones I had on there lasted over 100k miles. That truck did have no power so here was next to no burning out, only a few times dropping the clutch, but still to get that kind of mileage out of tires is pretty rare from what I see from other people. I just find it odd, I don't drive that easy to make that big of a difference, that's all.
