That sounds very low ... what tire pressure are you running at??

For the rear, I had two Bridgestone tires around ~8250 each.

For the front, I had one Bridgestone tire around ~27,000 miles ... the other I replaced around ~20,000 miles due to a raised alternating diamond pattern on both sides of the center line.

My word 4.5k is appallingly low. I am currently at 9.5k miles, original front, rear was changed at 3k due to a nail.

I would check pressures, the mileage you have quoted is well under that I would expect from a set of Hoops.

That is very low mileage for tires. If you are talking about the Hoops, my OEM tires were Hoops and I got 10,000 miles but they could have went farther. I think they last a couple of thousand miles more than the Diablos's but the Diablo's are stickier on twisties. Check your tires and I keep mine about 2 lbs over what is recommended.
