But you have a heck of a grip while they last. That's the trade off.
Back in the 80s and 90s when Pirelli was the factory tire, they did not last long.
Driving style have a lot to do with it as well.
I have used Continental Contipro Contact on my wife's 07 9-3 for two sets and got exactly 40K out of each set. Another regular customer that I put those on her 07 9-3 got 25K and now she is nearing the end of the second set at around 25K.
Last swap on wife's car I went with Michelin PILOT SPORT A/S and they still have some life left at 40K miles but they are slightly noisier (bouncier) than the Continental. That's probably why they last longer due to harder rubber.
