What Factors Affect Tire Life Expectancy?

The answer to the question: “How many miles do tires last?” can vary depending upon a number of factors. A better question to ask is, “How many miles should tires last?”. As we mentioned earlier: 50,000 miles, and we’ll address how to achieve the best lifespan momentarily. First, let’s take a look at all of the factors that can affect the longevity of your tires:

  • Tire Type: If your car features high-performance tires, they have extra grip, which means less rolling resistance and a shorter lifespan.
  • Treadwear Rating: For specific figures unique to your vehicle’s tires, check along the side walls of your tires for a tread wear rating.
  • Drivetrain: The expected lifespan of your tires will vary depending upon whether your vehicle is AWD, RWD, or FWD.
  • Road conditions: If you regularly drive on dirt roads, ice, in rain, on salt, or through snow, you can expect your tires to take a greater beating.
  • Terrain: If you live in a hilly area, the inclines will require your tires to work harder, meaning you can expect your tires to need more frequent replacement.
  • Driving habits: If you’re in the habit of stomping on your brakes or accelerating quickly on the streets of Palmetto, you’re wearing your tires out faster.

How to Optimize the Lifespan of Your Tires

Now that you know about how many miles tires should last, as well as all of the factors that can affect how many miles tires do last, take a look at our tire care tips to learn about how to get the most out of your tires.
