I like to slide the bike into corners (and sometimes out of corners), that really eats the tires. The road surface also has a big impact on tirewear, I often ride in france and the black forrest in germany, most of the road surface there is like sanding paper. Normally I change the fronts at the sametime with the rear, front is not reall worn out but because of the uneven wear the bike doesnt handle neutral anymore.
I think I once got 7500 Km (4600 mls) out of a road 2.
