I hate to tell you but those OEM tires are garbage. If you plan to by some actual high perf tires then expect to get even less distance out of them.

The past three sets of tires I have had were the Dunlop Star Specs. They aren't the tippy top best but they are probably in the top 3. I have been sticking with them because they seem to have the best balance of perf, wear and price. The other thing I like about them is the grip levels don't fall off as they age. They grip like crazy all the way up until they are corded.

I have a 2014 as well, in Canada, winter driven and I'm approaching 140k - no issues at all, just did regular maintenance. Didn't do the spark plug change yet either and never once had an issue.

Just continue with regular maintenance - the car doesn't really need much else

188,000 kms. Winter driven 14. Throw out bearing exploded and took out clutch and flywheel but that was my own fault for waiting too long after it started squawking. Engine bay looks like a 40 year old barn find car but everything works well. All untreated bolts are covered in surface rust which although ugly has not seemed to harm their performance. Stock struts on 1.5 inch lowering springs all still strong and working. Front bumper, hood and fenders look like they were hit by a claymore blast but some dent removal and a coat of paint will take care of that this summer. Still on the original brake pads and rotors with plenty of life left still. Big section of the bolster in my driver seat missing where the seat bet got caught between it and the door and I got a little vigorous in pulling it out. Most of my interior rattles, squeaks and squawks seem to have died of old age or just simply worn into place. Still haven't done the plugs and have noticed zero drop in performance or mileage. Original battery works well even in the coldest weather when I leave the dome light on overnight. All four wheels still unblemished by curb rash or stone hits (I have no idea how that has stayed that way).

Oh, I'm quite familiar with your type: you claim to be citizens of The Crown, yet pass for Americans when it suits you.... as long as you don't have to say "about", "room", or reference the letter "Z".

Actually the pronunciation of the letter Z does cause some issues at my workplace!

Great, another thread that had deteriorated to the point of referencing people's units.
