This guy did much better with his Michelin Defender LTX M/S tires:

A TIRE UPDATE
When you are road warriors like we are, it's always a good feeling to get new tires.
Like a new set of clothes
😅

The Michelin Defender tires coming off have 163 k+ miles on them down to 2/32nds. A new record for us. However I normally retire at 3/32nds for maximum safety.
Usually 145 k+ at 3/32nds.

That's certainly better than the 350 or so I'm getting. Those numbers must be the result of running the Platinum stuff, right?
I don't think there's a need to run Platinum with those heat cycles.

Changed out my in cabin air filter. I thought I did it last year but I guess not. No records of it, definitely needed it. Replaced with a Bosch 6090c, wore gloves for general protection while working on the truck. Wouldn't want a cut while doing this or anything.

Maybe he never drove with bad ball joints, and toe-out?
He transports, but doesn't tow. Here's the breakdown:

I purchased a set of 4 Michelin's ( 275/60R/20 ) out the door for $ 950 at BJ's Club at 130,402 on the odometer with 12/32nds tread new.

At 236,052 on the odometer I now have 7/32nds left. I usually replace my tires at 3/32nds but you could go to the warning markers at 2/32nds. So, what is my expected life of the tires ?

236,053 - 130,402 = 105,651 miles used
12/32 - 7/32 = 5/ 32 used
105,651 / 5 = 21,130 miles per 32nd

So, 9 ( /32 total useable tire ) times 21,130 miles per 32nd = 190,170 miles expected life of the tires.
So, ( $ 950 / 190,170 ) * 1,000 = Cost per 1,000 miles = $ 4.99

UPDATE 7/21/21 TIRE LIFE 163K+ with new tires installed today.

I'll have to check out the Bosch. The filters I'm using are grey colored, so it's hard to see how dirty they are. I like that Bosch is bright colored.

Here's what I'm using:

Are you vaccinated?
I'm transvacinated. I identify as vaccinated and require you and the government to treat me as a vaccinated individual when it comes to my ability to go outside and not wear a mask

Ok I’m glad you told me your pronoun before this got akward. But vaccinated still have to wear a mask. Because the vaccine works sooooo super good. It’s really only to make tr*mp supporters feel better.

I'm also transmasked. I sexually identify as wearing a mask in all situations even though I don't have one on my person, on my body, or in my truck
