**Answer : 800 KM**

**Explanation :**

Let Tire numbers be 1,2,3,4,5

1) Use Tire 1234 for 0-200 km

2) Use Tire 1235 for 2000-400 km

3) Use Tire 1254 for 4000-600 km

4) Use Tire 1534 for 6000-800 km

5) Use Tire 5234 for 8000-1,000 km

As you may have noticed, each Tire is used 4 times so total of 200×4 = 800 KM

As we can see each Tire gets to run 800 km
