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
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.
