High mileage driver. Hit me up with any questions.

I bought my 2017 Niro new September 3 of 2017. I have 74,000 miles on it as of today. All 4 tires are original and I never rotated them. They are getting a little lean in the front. If the rear tires would not have gotten choppy on the inside, I would say I am at 50% tread. I have 4new tires in the garage and waiting to put them on. I am curious who has more miles than me.

Have you had any unexpected maint. issues? Did you change the dual clutch fluid at 22.5k mi. and the belt?

That's some impressive mileage on the factory set wheels. Not sure on your location, but I'm assuming that you've been using them year round as well?

I thought I drove a lot with almost 45k miles in a year. My tires still look great with plenty of tread on them. I have been rotating them every 10k miles.

No maintenance issues yet. Not big on maintenance other than oil changes. I have been doing them between 7000 and 9000 mile intervals. I believe my last oil change was close to 9k. I was down about a half quart of oil when I drained it. St. Louis MO. I keep the same tires on year round. I void my warranty by not doing the maintenance but with as many miles as I drive I would go broke maintaining it to Kia specs

Penny picture is rear tire. Good tread picture is rear tire. Bad tread front tire.

Well the front tires are about to go. 75,400 miles is all I can get. Checked them tonight and starting to show some threads. Still impressed.

Might have gone 100,000 miles with rotation!

As an FYI for new car owners, I added road hazard and lifetime rotation balance to the OEM tires at a tire chain for a very reasonable $75.
