The tires don't wear prematurely, they just don't last as long as other tires made with harder material. World of difference when I had them installed. They are soft, but they grip like a gorilla fist. (I forget what 'model' Shinkos they are).
S’what I meant, only ‘soft‘ and ‘hard’ are relative terms, these days. I remember when a car tire with a 5-600 wear rating meant it was hard as a rock with little grip. Now, that’s the norm for a ‘performance’ all-season, with tires in the 800 range that still aren’t too bad!

Sort of like the miracles Michelin wrings out of their Commander and Road lines…
