What Factors Affect Tires Life Expectancy?

So, how many miles do tires last and how many miles should tires last? These questions can have different answers depending on a number of factors. These can include:

  • Type of tire: Though high-performance tires have extra grip, they may wear faster than all-season tires which have less rolling resistance.
  • Treadwear rating: Tires come with a treadwear rating, which rates the life expectancy of the tire treads.
  • Drivetrain: If you have front-wheel drive, your tires will wear differently than if you had rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive because of where the main power is sent.
  • Road conditions: Tend to drive on dirt or gravel roads regularly? Even if you encounter snow, salt, rain, or ice more frequently, your tires can take more of a beating. If you plan to use your vehicle for off-roading, this will also make a big difference in your tires.
  • Terrain: If you live in an area with inclines on the roads, more friction on the tires is required to start and stop the vehicle than on flat surfaces.
  • Driving habits: Having a lead foot on the gas and brakes will wear out your tires faster than accelerating gradually and letting coasting do some of the braking work.

Tire Care Tips For Long-Lasting Tires

Along with adopting more cautious driving habits, there are a few other things you as a car owner can do to extend the life of your tires. These include:

  • Inspect for proper air pressure when you fill your gas tank, as many gas stations have tire inflation stations.
  • Regularly inspect tire tread depth for tire tread wear.
  • Rotate your tires for more even distribution of tire wear.
  • Take your vehicle in for regularly scheduled maintenance.
