I worked out this morning that the set of tires we just replaced lasted about five years and we rolled about 63,000 miles on them over that time. That's not too bad. What's also a bit surprising to me is that even with several very long road trips (San Diego, Portland, Spokane twice, Kansas City), we still managed less than 15K miles/year.
