Lost me there. Why would LRR tires wear more rapidly? I would think they'd wear less rapidly: harder compounds, lower flex for less heat & friction, etc. And certainly I haven't noticed the Potenzas on the Insight wearing particularly fast. I think I replaced the rears (which AFAIK were original) at about 80-90K miles, and they're still looking good at 150K. The fronts do wear faster, but I think that has something with my habit of not braking much in the curves...
