Hello, we have about 36.000 miles on our Outback and the dealer is
suggesting we need to replace the original tires.  Is this common on this
model?
Thanks

36k is not that bad for a stock set of tires. I have found that tire salesmen start pushing new tires at around 50% tire life. How deep is the tread?

36,000 miles on Outback OEM tires is normal based on my experience. I had a 2015 Limited. I now have a 2017 Limited. Both I had the replace tires after 30,000 miles. I could have run more miles. But I have learned over the years not to push my luck with worn tires. I currently have General AltiMax and love them. The wear rate may be normal for these AWD vehicles.

With a 2015 Outback, I'm at 53k miles and considering to replace original tires - am I past due?

At 50,000 miles, my Outback low pressure sensor turned on. Tire actually had a split. If traveling at high speed, could have resulted in a blowout. From a safety perspective, get the tires replaced.

Mountain driving with a Subaru means short tire life. I wish I could get 36k on a set. Two Subies and both use up tires fast.
