At 800 miles, mine was .288 in.  I'd have to check my notes for my last reading at 2K miles, but I do remember it calculated out to 9K (total) of tread life.

My fourth 777 is at the shop now, awaiting tomorrow morning to get mounted up on the rim. I've been getting about 10-12,000 out of them, not babied.
Yeah, if you want true ram air tuning, you better be willing to ram some air! (SiSF)

Can you get a tread depth measurement before you put many miles on that new 777?. I am trying to see if I can calculate my possible mileage.

Well get that thing running instead of sleeping all morning.  :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

A burnout party might go well with the tech session, along with drone video.

Yeehaw!!
