Whoa there!  I scenically run my tires to death and maybe a little beyond, 
to get the most value/$.
I've  lost two tires on a motorcycle (a 1959 Matchless 650).  I lost a rear 
while crossing a set of railway tracks at Craighurst Ontario, something 
punched a clean 1/4" hole through it (the tire was 25 miles old).  The other 
was a year later same bike.  I t-boned a 1964 Pontiac Acadian (Chevy II) the 
bike went in the driver's side rear door and out the passenger's side, the 
wheel was wrapped around the engine and the tire was flat.  This tire had 
less than 1000 miles on it as I had spent the previous riding season in a 
body cast with 3 crushed vertebrae caused in a factory accident.
