I have a 2017 Scat Pack with the Goodyear Eagle F1 tires I was just wondering about how many miles people are getting out of those tires.

I had them on me R/T for like a year and a half..they are pretty sticky, alot of grip. But I took them off..other people have stated the tread-wear rate on them is not all that great. I took them off because they were so damn sticky...they were throwing up stones and pebbles all over my wheel wells and the lower sides of my car. I would pull into a parking lot and could hear all the crud being thrown all over the underside of the car. After I took them off all that went away!

It depends on the kind of driving you do.

It its most in town, stop/go turns probably 11 - 16k is average

the longest was someone that DD and commuted - 24k, which is practically a record for F1s

13K on my 13 R/T and I'm no racer. Just normal "Challenger" driving. I was actually completely unaware that these were grippy high-performance tires and when they wore out that soon, I complained to Goodyear, and they gave me 50% off of a new set of Eagle Sports. (50K guarantee tire). Those have performed well, although the first set was down to 5/32 by 40K. Got warranty adjustment and 20% off the current set of Eagle Sports. My Goodyear store has been pretty good to me.

I have almost 9,000 on them now and they look like they are about half wear out thank you for the input. And I'm not real hard on them so hopefully I'll get maybe around 18 thousand miles

I had them replaced at like 13k miles (one year). They probably had enough tread left for about another 2k miles but I was traveling to Florida from NC and the round trip is around 1,500 miles plus so I didn't want to take the chance. I've since upgraded to 275/40/20s. Much better contact grip and looks much better then the thin 245s.

I replaced my OEM set 8 years/45000 kms later....rears were at 5/32, fronts worn out at edges (bad alignment)


The only bad thing is that now I cant spin them as easy...new Firestone Firehawk Indy 500's way better....more grip too....!

So I literally looked at my tires on my 2011 SRT-8 and I am just now seeing the belts in the middle, with some tread left on the sides. Original tires from factory. I managed to get a bit over 23K on them. Looking for another tire, was thinking about the Michelin Super Sports, that everyone keeps saying they put on their Challengers, but according to the website they don't have a 245/45ZR20(front) 255/45ZR20(rear). So I might just get another set of these.

I have a 2017 Scat Pack with 9,000 miles looks like I may possibly get 20 thousand out of these tires definitely going with something else. Treadwear is only 220 on these I'm looking for something that'll get more mileage than this. You done good to get 23000 on yours sounds like you're running on my pops with the threads showing.

It's only the rear driver where it's bad. The other three have some tread left, which sorta irks me, since I've rotated the tires every winter. Probably could get another 1500 on the other 3. Also sounds like I need to get the alignment checked in the back

Those Firestones are rated just as good as the Continental EXTREMECONTACT DWS 06

I put Goodyear Eagle Sport All Season on my R/T. I really like them and in 2yrs. I've put 40K miles on them and they're still almost like new. Rotate every 5K miles and keep an eye on pressure. I drive a lot of twisty two lanes and they're holding up very well.
