How Many Miles Do Tires Last?

tires

When you purchase OEM or high-quality replacement tires for your Mount Vernon vehicle, you should expect them to hold out for around 50,000 miles. Learn more about tire life expectancy and how you can help yours last longer with the auto service experts at Victory Mitsubishi.

What Factors Affect Tire Life Expectancy?

It’s an unfortunate fact that the questions “how many miles do tires last” and “how many miles should tires last” can have differing answers. It all depends on a number of important factors:

  • Type of tire: High-performance tires are great for providing extra grip on New Rochelle roads, but they tend to wear out faster than all-season tires, which have the benefit of less rolling resistance.
  • Treadwear rating: You’ll find a treadwear rating on each of your tires, which tells you the life expectancy of the tire’s tread.
  • Drivetrain: Tires wear at different rates depending on whether your vehicle’s drivetrain is RWD, FWD, AWD, or 4WD. This is due to the difference in where the main power for forward motion is derived.
  • Road conditions: If you have to drive on gravel or dirt roads regularly, or you encounter construction, snow, salt, rain, and ice, your tires will take more of a beating. Additionally, if you plan to use your vehicle for off-roading, this activity can wear your tires out quickly.
  • Terrain: Is your Westchester home situated on a steep incline? Traversing hills frequently will require more friction from your tires, which wears them out faster.
  • Driving habits: Ever been accused of having a “lead foot?” You may want to take heed – accelerating and braking gradually and allowing coasting to do more of the work will put far less wear on your tires over time.

Tire Care Tips for Longer-Lasting Tires

Cautious driving habits are a big help, but there are a few more things you can do to extend the life of your tires:

  • Check for proper air pressure occasionally when you fill up on gas. If you’re low, you can usually pull right over to a tire inflation station that most gas stations have on-site to fill up.
  • Inspect your tire tread depth regularly to inspect your tire tread wear.
  • Rotate your tires regularly for an even distribution of tire wear.
  • Be sure to follow a regular maintenance schedule.
