The set of Avon ZZ5 before were on the car when I bought it and lasted at least 28,000 miles in my ownership, plus whatever mileage the previous owner did on them.

The tyres before that were the originals from the factory and I think covered approx 25,000 miles. Would these have been Continental Sport Contact 3 as original fitment tyres?

What tyres do you use and what sort of mileage do you get?
16k is not great but not bad.

I have Michelin cross climate and they have coverd 8k with 2 or so mm worn. I would expect 25k out of them on the front of an xc90 which is driven hard.
