Default Tire mileage we can expect...?

Just got my new truck less than a week ago and was curious as to what kind of mileage y'all have been experiencing with the factory Goodyear Wrangler tires that comes stock on most new F150s. Mine are the P275/65R18 . I am a pretty conservative driver...pretty easy on the starts and stops. But I do live in a fairly curvy area.

I know there is no concrete answer...but just curious as to what the average might be.

The reason I'm asking is because I recently saw a used '13 XLT 4x4 with 14K miles and it looked like the tires had maybe 45-50% left on them.

Mine lasted less than 30k km. lots of tread left separated on face of tires . Have more than 30k km. on new ones ( Hankook LT 's ) still look like new and more stable towing than the ones that came with the truck

I have 16800 miles on mine and the are less than half tread. I doubt they will make it much past 25k

Hankook stock 17" tires. I'm at 69,000 and there's still a lot of tread left. BUT. I drive mostly hiway. Your curvy area will kill tire tread.

I had the exact same tire from the factory. I got 28K out of them. When I got them replaced, the guy at Discount Tire told me that they had been seeing a lot of them coming in with under 30k on them. I replaced them with a set of BFG All Terrains. Only got 45k out of those. Next were BFG Rugged Terrains. Got 60K out of those. Now on my second set of Rugged Terrains.

Bought my 2011 with 34,000 miles on it and the stock Wrangler SR-A's were almost at the wear bars. My buddy has a 2010 and replaced his at around 30,000 miles.

Looks like the consensus is they don't last all that long. Kind of what I figured but was hoping for better. It's a good looking tire though .
