Just picked up an 09 V loaded up 6spd black black with all the stuff an 8k. Was just wondering how much too expect as far as life length from the pilots. Again my car has only 8K and the tires are pretty much wiped. Especially the rears obviously. Not sure which way too go, was thinking maybe some pzeros. Any feedback would be much appreciated.

Welcome to the forum. I'm sure you will enjoy your V. Of course how long the tires last depend a great deal on how the car is driven. You can find a good deal of information here on different brands and types of tires people have experienced. Use the search tool top, right of each page. Again, welcome.

Noticed the tire tread depth on my PS2's with the same 8K as yours is 7/32". If the tires "are pretty much wiped" you can pretty much thank the previous owner who obviously had too much lead in their right foot!

There are a couple of people here (including me) who run Bridgestone RE-11 in 265 front and 305 rear. As far as I know, that is the widest you can go with the stock wheels.

20K on mine still life on them. I figure about 25-30K they will need to go. I don't spin the tires in normal driving (hardly never!) Been down the 1/4 mile 12 passes but don't do burnouts. Keep it in normal drive so the gears help keep it connected to the dirt.
