I guess I didn't explain it the way I meant it. Yes, I too get more miles out of tires, that I use daily. It's not unusual for me to get 60 or 70K out of a set. But I have to do it in 4 or 5 years. After that they begin to break down. My 84 Dodge truck had good looking tires on it when I retired it from being my daily driver about three years ago. Now all four tires won't hold air and still have nearly half the tread left. I have had name brand tires and no name tires. Most of the time I get about the same results.
I drive about 25,000 miles a year, sometimes more, mostly pavement but maybe 20% on dirt. My daily driver gets a new set of tires about every three years. I usually retire(?) the old ones to a trailer. Or I used to until none of my vehicles had 15 inch wheels. I just think the compounds used are different, more mileage but shorter hours.
