    thanks guys. I would be happy with 8000 miles! I must be doing something wrong.
    alignment seems accurate, but maybe my tire gage is reading low and I'm overpressured? Will check.

    Greg - what kinda life do you get out of a rear? Do you find running other than 42psi helps? I bet I don't get 4000 miles. Of course, my sidewalls look brand new... Jim
