How long do OEM tires last on average?

Mine are Pirelli Pzero Nero all season. There seem to be plenty of life in them. The mileage is 35,000. How long should I expect out of them?

Could last anywhere from 40-60K (I'm guessing). Depends on how you drive mostly. I have 20K on mine and I'm already down to 5/32's left on the tread. Yeah I'm a spirited driver and drive long distances when I do drive. My suggestion would be to get a second set of rims/tires for a summer/winter set up as I did. This could help with the tire life.

PSS for sure. I'm on my 2nd set and when it comes time I'll probably buy a third set. I still have the pzero neros on my stock wheels and last month put them on the car for a week. The traction on the pss is a lot better. I felt like the pzero neros were bouncy, they have a softer sidewall so I felt like I was bouncing around a lot. At the same time there's something about the pzeros that make them feel rougher. I get to about 25 mph or lower and something about the tire just feels really off, like I've got bricks in my tires. They also make a lot more noise. The pss are quieter, smoother, and have better traction.
