What Factors Affect Tires Life Expectancy?

Normally, you should expect to get a good solid 50,000 miles out of a pair of replacement tires, but this number can change based on several factors. Here’s a quick overview:

  • Treadwear rating: Your tires will come with a treadwear rating, which gives you an estimate of the life expectancy of your tire treads.
  • Type of tire: Tires rated for high performance will have extra grip but may wear down faster than less resistant all-season tires.
  • Drivetrain: Having a FWD or RWD drive will change the way your tires wear down because of the different way power is distributed. AWD vehicles will differ even further.
  • Road conditions: Regular driving on dirt or gravel roads, frequent construction, and inclement weather that causes snow and ice will cause more wear on your tires.
  • Terrain: A hilly place will put more friction on your tires, which in turn will put more wear on your tires.
  • Driving habits: If you’re a more aggressive driver in Warwick who uses the gas and brakes harder, you’ll wear down your tires quicker.

If you’re asking “how many miles should tires last,” you’ll have a better idea when you factor in the different ways you drive.

Our Top Tire Care Tips

You can not only change your driving habits to improve your tire life, you can also do these things to extend your time on the road before needing new tires:

  • Check your tires for proper air pressure. Most gas stations have air to inflate your tires.
  • Check your tire tread depth regularly to make sure they’re not overly worn. If your tire tread depth is less than 2/32 of an inch, it’s time for a change.
  • Rotate your tires for an even distribution of tire wear.
  • Get regularly scheduled maintenance on your car.
