We need more information!

Are you saying that your car is wearing out a set of rear tires every 12K miles?
Tell us more about the tires that you have on your car.
What is the brand and model? i.e. Michellin Pilot Sport PSII
What is the size? i.e. 275/35-18

Regards, Lynn

tire wear

I would expect 20,000 but if you drive sport stlye then you might get 12,000.
On 1 of my cars I get about 15,000 maximum.
The wide high speed tires on some of our Benz models are very soft and wear very quickly.
You could try a different brand of tire but do not buy a cheap tire, stick with a well known brand and stay the size Benz recommends for your car.
Hope this helps.

What is the tread wear rating? If it is in the lower range and you drive aggressively then you may not get very many miles. When you change tires next time look for one that has good wet/dry traction but has a higher tread wear rating.

It's kind of tough to figure out without info about the tires. Would you post some more information and maybe we can help out a little better if it's more of your driving style, or the tires themselves.
