My 94 federal vx came with the original tires in 2008. The car had been totalled and sat in an insurance training center for 14 years (controlled environment). It had 27,492 miles when I got it with the rear end shoved into the trunk.

The original bridgestone tires were rated for 38 PSI. I ran them at 38 at 14years age until I replaced them after I got the car repaired and painted. Lost 7MPG average with the Michelin X tires I installed!

Best road trip on the original tires at 64 MPH on the Interstate was 300 miles on 4.627 gallons of fuel on the original tires.
