Wow. I just checked the tires on mine. Better than 1/4" left at 35600
miles and being in LA, they're on year round. How come yours are
wearing out considerably faster? BTW 51 MPG for all 35000 miles.

Our mileage is about the same.   I have to think a major wear factor is
tractionized (for ice/snow) concrete and I have a lot of miles on that.
When you transition from smooth concrete to tractionized concrete the noise
level doubles.  Also, about 10% of my miles are on gravel.
