Who has gone the most miles on a 4g and who has gone through the most tires and rims?

Theres an old thread about the engine mileage but Just curious what the engine can make it to Without needing rebuilding. Didnt want to revive a old thread Mine has 212,000 still running just need to replace a o2 and as in sets of tires ive personally went through factory set, replacment set including rims, additional 6 rims and 8 tires on top of a new set of rims and 2 additional sets, thats 6 sets of tires and 4 sets of rims technically. Ive had my car since 2011 at 45,000 miles to start so i guess 6 sets of tires averages to a set a yr which isnt as bad as it seems just pretty regular wear

I'm way behind you on mileage, I bought mine with (not converting) 132,000km on it, and am at 162,000km now. When I bought it it had a new set of Hankook Optimo tires, which lasted ~22,000km of the 80,000 life they are rated for.

However, I use a different set of tires in the winter which I just can't damn well kill. They've got about 15,000km on them, but haven't had an easy life. Half tread left on the fronts, near full on the rear.

My most needed maintenance at this point is to give my air filter a bath, lol. It's covered in salt and sand, no way it's breathing nice.

I've got some Goodyear Eagle Sport tires for the summer. They're not as good straight line as my Hankook Optimo's were, but the low speed cornering is nicer. High speed, they don't feel as nice because they're way heavier

Got 124k kilometers on mine. Came with Falken all seasons which have been living on borrowed time for awhile. Purchased Continental ExtremeContact DWs for summer, have yet to install them.

Toyo Observes for the snow. Not a bad set of rubber, haven't gotten me stuck yet (knock on wood)

There was a wrecked 06 eclipse for sale near me for $1,200 260k miles. Like everyone says keep the belts up to date and the car will give before the engine

I have about 104k miles on mine, it is running fine. Going to change my tires this week because the Michelin's are about done, also upgrading my wheels from stock to SSR. If you take care of it by replacing timing belts and water pumps, also oil changes, it can last for years.....I still have to check my timing belt, I bought the car at 88k miles.
