Tyres- How long are they lasting

It would be interesting to know what mileage you are getting out of a set of tyres? With 20" run flats costing around 330 front and 360 rear longevity will be a key issue for running costs so I wonder if any members are yet on a second set of tyres and could share their experience on the forum, mileage when changed and make of tyre?

10,400 on my odometer and it appears that I have about another 5K miles left on the rear 20's, perhaps a bit longer on the front. My SA was somewhat amazed at the condition of my tires last visit. And mind you - I do not baby the car

If your configuration had the same size front/rear, and you could rotate them, it would likely improve things. Obviously, won't work for you. Opting for the sport package or larger than standard tires/wheels has its consequences, both good and bad.
