What is the tread wear like on the C300 AWD All Season Run Flats? (18" Sport Rims)

I spoke to a service department and he said the Pirelli RF is rated at 40K miles and even shows that on their website.

My concern stems from a 36mo/45K lease. I didn't want to have to replace 2 Sets of 4 tires over the course of the lease as someone told me they were 20K mile Tread wear. Seems to be conflicting info.

    First, tire wear is highly dependent on the way you drive - as in city driving (lots of turns) vs country driving (lots of straight line driving). Yes, tires have tread wear ratings and 400 is not very good - and it is quite possible that you will only get 20K out of a set. But it is also possible you'll get more than 40K.

    Read your lease to find out what you need to do about tires when you turn it in - and act accordingly.
