So I put 6318 miles on my winter tires/wheels.

The Impreza currently has approximately 15,500 miles on the odometer. So my Yokos currently have approximately 9200 miles on them. They've been rotated once (when I installed them again in the spring, when they had the original 7407 miles on them).

For what it's worth, I inflate my tires 3 pounds high (35 front/33 rear), and drive conservatively MOST of the time (but not always; when I'm on my favorite on-ramp, I get pretty rowdy ).
Right. And mine were supposedly perfect at 7500 miles. Guess you'll be keeping an eye on things! I'll post if the dealer has anything edifying to say.
