I was just wondering how much difference there is between the two tires(AD07's vs AO48's) in terms of thier longevity???
ie miles expected??

I would guess that the A048's are good for 5-10,000 miles depending on how agressively you drive and road temperature.

From what's I've read here, for hard track use, 3 to 10K miles seems about right. Normal use may be around 10,000. I'm hoping with a slightly higher pressure, I may be able to get 15,000, since I mostly do freeway driving.

Does road temperature cause a signifigant amount of tire wear? I'm wondering if the 115 summers will melt the rubber right off (so to speak).

By the looks of my tread after 6,500 miles, I'd say my AD07s are good for 18K. I'd guess the AO48s, from my limited experience with them and from what I've read, will go half of that. In a year I can give you exact figures for each. :)
