Hi -My own personal experience is that I have a 2010Mk2 1.6TDCi manual with16" Michelin Primacy HP. At the 12,500 service recently the fronts were measured at 6mm of tread remaining, so potentially I could achieve 37,500 miles of use(with 2mm remaining). I have to assume that type & style of driving will have an impact. I personally do about 80-90% of my driving on dual carriageways and motorways, so little braking or corners.

our 1.6 Diesel has had Goodyear NCT 5 and the later pattern and presently has Dunlop Fast Response all of which seem relatively quiet and grip well and give good tyre life
