  4. LOL. Good stuff.

    Regarding your 3rd question, it's almost impossible to give an exact number. It will depend on how fast you go, how heavy your car is, if it's aligned properly, if the tires are properly inflated, the treadwear rating of the tires, etc. Generally, highway miles are harder on the tires than in-town miles because more heat is generated in the tire on the highway, but highway miles are far less hard on the tires than say, burnouts.
