Ahhh, the shitty tire lesson. A lesson most of us learn early in life.

You can cheap out on tires, but you definitely get what you pay for with them.

This will vary a ton depending on surrounding conditions and how the car was driven and maintained. I've heard of a few starting to have major issues at 40,000 miles and others at 200,000. I have 60K on mine and nothing is really giving me grief besides the 2nd gear syncro.

yea 91K isn't really much for a car nowadays. Basic preventative maintenance is pretty much all it takes to get a modern car to run forever.
