At the 15K toyota service, my toyota agent said i needed new tires. I have Goodyear Integrity tires that, according to Goodyear, are warranteed to 50k miles. Toyota does not warrantee the tires, nor does Goodyear on a new car. The dealership replaced two tires, but not all four. Do any of you have unusually early wear on your tires?

There should be a Goodyear warrantee pamphlet that came with the owner’s manual. Check it over to see what is covered. Did you rotate the tires every 5000 miles as recommended by Toyota? If you have been doing that, there is something definitely wrong with your alignment, or you have not been maintaining proper inflation in the tires. Those tires should take you well over 15K miles.

42K miles, still have decent tread. Probably will need replacement about 55K-60K.

I do believe Goodyear is supposed to warranty the tires assuming the car's condition (alignment, inflation, rotation) didn't cause the premature wear.
