When I changed tyres on my Juke and subsequently my previous QQ I ditched the Continentals and went for Avon.
Far more surefooted greatly superior in rain and snow with reduced noise as a bonus.
Current Dunlops are pants in the wet, delighted we've not had snow.

OEM tyres on my J11 were Continental, fronts lasted about 15k, rears about 25k. Replaced the fronts with Dunlops, these lasted about 20k and rears with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 which I also replaced the Dunlops on the front with.

Very happy with the Michelins - grips great, noise totally acceptable and hopefully will get good mileage. Black Circles have offers on these fairly regularly.

I am still on my OEMs,21,000ks.(Continental Sport contact 5s) think I will get around 25,000ks +.It is all about pressures,wheel alignment & rotation.Will probably either go Continental or Michelin next time.You are not going to get massive mileage out of these type of tyre,they are not designed as a “mileage” tyre.

That seems to be the “ball park figure”(or around that area) for these type of tyres.Just on a different note,my GT Mustang has 12,000ks on the clock,& is running Pirelli P Zero’s,they will probably max out around the 20,000k mark.

Hi Noddy, we have Michelin’s on our new QQ but they are in Store, but I am just keeping a check on the prices. Here you can get for example : Michelin’s £138 / Conti’s £123 / Dunlop’s £106 so most probably scouting around and doing a bit of “Wheeling & Dealing” the Cost could be achieved - Dave 😁
