That is the truth!

I'm close to 50K miles on my tires and they aren't anywhere close to being worn out. Very few people have managed to squeeze 50K miles out of a set of Enasaves. This upgrade is going to pay for itself because I don't think I'm going to need new tires until my car has close to 100K miles.
But it's hard to tell someone the first thing they should do with their new car is get rid of perfectly good wheels/tires.
