I have a 2008 F with 11,300 miles. Went to dealership for oil, and they said i need new front brakes(pads and rotors). Also need 4 new tires because of inner tire wear. $2700 for both. I am going to definitley going to get tires myself. But with the brakes what should I do? Thanks!

Bring it to an independent shop for a second opinion. We have seen several people post this same question. I know there is a tsb for the brakes, but I know know if it would be covered for this.

Tires are about right. I got 12k on the OEM's. I went with the Michelin AS all weathers instead of the PS2. Brakes are different, I got about 24k on the fronts and the rears are about due at 31k. Good Luck

My 2008 IS-F has 14,600 miles. The factory PS2s have 2mm to the wear bars ... probably 2,000 more no-thrash miles. The front pads have 12mm remaining, so ABYARS' expereince in the 20k range is in line with my experience. Then again, I try not to use the brakes if at all possible!

I would strongly recommend you consider Continental's ExtremeContact DWS tire ... particularly living in NY State. As I posted elsewhere, my son switched to these tires for his Mazdaspeed3 and now has >20k miles and the "S" is still visible on the tread. He tells me the dry weather performance is similar to the factory Bridgestone RE050 but wet and really-wet performance is outstanding. On Tire Rack's site the DWS is their #1 all weather performance tire and the DW (no snow rating) their #1 summer performance tire.

Please post what you chose and your experience with that choice.
