Looks like you have the similar wearing pattern as me, which the outer edge wears more than inner one. You're getting roughly the same mileage/km out of these as me. Probably need to change them soon.

Just made a poll to make this thread more informational. I think it's a good idea to let everybody (or new owners in particular) to have an idea roughly how much we can get out of the OEM tires. Partially for safety reason as well.

As you can see from the photo, the outer edge of the tire has worn out much more than the inner side. All four tires are like that. Does that mean my alignment is way off?

The tire tread depth of both rear tires were measured at 3/32 ~1000 miles ago when I had the services. Can anybody give me any suggestion whether I need to change the tires immediately or not? I can sorta feel some loss of traction when the road is very wet. Thanks.

Well, I have been always looking at my inside tire area at the rear. Well today I almost hit 14K miles and guess what?

My tires are wearing out exactly like yours.
