2010 Toyota Prius 101,000 mi,
I bought the car used, and every couple of months a tire would blow out. The tire low light comes on just before the tire blows. I now have 4 new tires on the car (having bought one each time). If you see that light come on, pull over quickly.
2004 Toyota Prius 145,000 mi,
Replaced tires 20k miles ago (had gone 30k before previous replacement), and they're already at 4/32" tread depth. Using Integrity tires, may switch off but don't want to see mileage suffer as seems to be the case.
2008 Toyota Prius 28,000 mi,
Tires worn out, had to replace. Cudn't find easily. Cost me $700 for a set from dealer.
