the GT350 should be around 4.3 and the R version should be about .04 less

Is anyone replacing their stock drive shaft on the 2015-17 GTR350? Is it a two piece like the GT?

Would some of you who have many miles on your GT tell me what kind of wear your seeing?

I've got about 9000 miles and a few autocross weekends included, been measuring the tread any chance I get and my MPSS tires are about 1/2 worn.

I went to a car show a few weeks ago and met up with two other GT350's and one car had 12k and still plenty of tread with one auto cross event.

 

Better than I thought. Obviously its all about how we drive the car ..... but I hope to get better than 12 k out of my tires

Probably depends on how hard u drive it around corner and or how hard u accelerate regarding wear conditions between front and back tires

Rear tires lasted 5000 miles on the Michelin factory and the fronts scrubbed out on the inner edges at 27000 miles . still had a lot left on them otherwise so a camber issue.

Fitted Nitto on the rear and they are still going great. finding tires is a hell of a job, I got mine from discount tires on Ebay and had my local guys fit them , Worked out a lot cheaper.

All i can find in brands that are sized for the 350 are Nitto, Pirrelli , michelin yokohama and bridgestone , actually getting the last two will take some detective work as the factory website lists them but local dealers cant find them :( 

I guess I was pretty hard on the rear tires for the first 5000 miles but what the hell its a sports car right .

Do you have a GT350 or GT350R?  In my searches, I've only found that Michelin offers the correct sizes for the GT350.  I'd be happy to have options, but I just haven't seen them for the non-R.

I just replaced my rears at 10,000. Fronts are still ok. This includes 3 track weekends and normally driving in sport mode on the street. I could have gotten another track weekend out of the rears but they were down to the wear bars so too thin for the street. I'm happy with this as I drive it like I stole it.

I have talked to other owners who I met at various car shows and they had 12000 + miles and still had tread left to burn
