What Impacts Tire Life Expectancy?

The answer when asking, “how many miles do tires last” and “how many miles should tires last,” may be different depending on how your vehicle is maintained and can vary based on a number of factors:

  • Tire Type: High performance tires tend to wear quicker than all-season tires due to more rolling resistance.
  • Treadwear Rating: Tires come equipped with a treadwear rating to indicate how many miles your tires should last.
  • Drivetrain: Tires wear differently depending on if they’re on a front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, or all-wheel drive vehicle, because of differences in where the power is sent.
  • Driving Conditions: Taking vehicles off-roading or regularly traversing gravel roads can diminish how long tires will last. Additionally, snow, salt, rain, and ice can inhibit your tires life expectancy.
  • Terrain: Areas with more hills or inclines will create more friction on tires as opposed to routinely stopping on flat surfaces.
  • Your Driving Habits: Having a lead foot or not properly inflating your tires can lead to uneven tire wear. Letting off the gas and allowing your car to coast to a stop can prevent this type of tire damage.
