As for Primacy e tyres, reading this I would avoid unless rolling resistance is the only concern.

Cheers for that, I was suspicious on how they managed to rewrite physics, it seems they didn't :lol: had some Bridgestone B340's originally on my smart Roadster, we called them Flintstones, shocking in the wet and some people managed to get 80,000 miles out of the fronts!

Think I'll stick to the pilot sport 4's as I haven't gone off the road yet with them, even with my driving :P

Generally the rear pads tend to wear faster than the front if the active cruise control is regularly used. Of course might not be the reason in your case.

Until June (when I started working from home) I was always using ACC on my commute so that could be the reason. Now that I’m usually doing shorter trips I rarely use ACC.
Over the 35+ years that I’ve owned cars, on every other single car, the front pads & discs have worn at a rate of around 3 times of the rears.
Yes, in the past the front pads would always wear considerably faster than the rears, however in todays era of technology, my understanding is that the rears are predominately used by ACC to reduce the speed when following the car in front, hence the increased wear.
