Since 2008 after caravanning for 20 years
I have covered 8800 miles in the first year. At service the front tyre tread depth was noted as 5mm and the rear 7mm. I realise with front wheel drive the front will wear faster but have others experienced this amount of wear. I am looking at possibly only 20 k for my front tyres.

there is usually a balance with tyres. Softer tryes and ride with the increased grip will mean thay wear quicker.
Harder tyres Like michellin mean they last a bit longer.

Just replaced all 4 of mine with michellin. the fronts were down to 2mm and ther rears were at 5mm
Van has done 30k but he tyres were 5 years old anyway and showing signs of cracking.
