How Many Miles Do Car Tires Last When Taken Care Of?

The questions of, “How many miles do tires last” and “How many miles should tires last?” Is pretty much based on the factors below:

  • Type of tire: OEM or high-performance tires give extra grip on Great Falls streets but they tend to wear faster than all-season tires.
  • Treadwear rating: Overtime, your tire tread will wear down so it’s important to check the treadwear rating.
  • Drivetrain: If you’re cruising through Mclean in a front-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive vehicle, the tires that get the most power will wear down faster than if you have an all-wheel drive vehicle.
  • Road conditions: If your daily commute constantly consists of rough dirt or gravel roads, your tire life can be reduced. If you encounter construction, ice, rain, salt, or snow at some point in Chantilly or beyond, that can make a big difference in your tire life as well.
  • Terrain: Slight and steep inclines on roads can lead to an increase in friction on your tires since the vehicle is no longer on a flat surface.
  • Driving habits: Whether you accelerate quickly or brake hard, it’ll wear your tires out faster.

How to Make Tires Last Longer

So, how many miles do tires last? They can last 50,000 miles, but there are a few ways to extend the longevity of your tires:

  • Check your proper air pressure when you visit your local gas station. Use a tire inflation station to check the pressure.
  • Inspect the tire numbers and tire tread depth on a regular basis.
  • When you get an oil change, be sure to rotate your tires for even wear
  • Schedule routine maintenance.
