Default Stock Goodyears Question

I just had my tires rotated and my mechanic, who's also my cousin, said I'm damn near illegal as far as remaining tread depth. I have 12k miles on it and don't do burn outs or anything.

Aren't tires rated to a certain mileage and can I do anything about it? I shouldn't be buying new shoes after 10 months.

That does not sound right for the tires. Talk to your dealer. I have 12,000 on mine and they still look almost new.

You should get more out of them than that. My 2010 should have the same tires as yours. They had about 42k when I changed them out. It was basically all hwy mileage, and they were extremely bald. I'd expect if you drive more city you should get less, like maybe 30k-40k.

check the sidewall of the tire for the treadwear rating. then id go to tire rack or discount tires web site and compare tires with the same treadwear rating. with any luck youll even find your original equipment tires there. if not at least this will give you some idea of the mileage you should be getting. 12000 miles definitly doesnt sound right.
