Michelin MPSS until now. Average 25 to 30K miles on rears. 35 to 40K miles on fronts.

I just installed MP4S all around a few weeks ago. So far I am enjoying the new tires. Time for an Autumn run across the Sierra passes to truly test them.

I put the same tires (well, different sizes) on Pam's GLA45 as well. They made hers a much better driver compared to the Conti 6Ps it came with.

I would love to see a alignment report to get that many miles on your tires.

Posting a file share for the 997 (.1 and .2) workshop manuals, PET and supplements I have. This is on one of my US based servers with a gig fiber connection, so should download as fast as your connection will support. You can either download entire folders or browse the PDF contents and get only what you need.
Enjoy!

Wow, are the roads paved with pillows where you live? I'd kill to get that kind of mileage out of a set of rears.

Are you running non-stock alignment specs? Maybe something with less-aggressive camber and toe? I a. Considering doing that with my next set of tires.

Before my tire shop would do an alignment the brake mechanic sat down with me to evaluate my driving habits. Given 80% freeway commute miles and 20% relatively aggressive spirited driving along with a background of motorcycles and cars on snow and ice he opted for the attached. This may not be the right set up for everyone, and definitely is not what you would do if you tracked the car, but I am happy with the results .
