What Factors Affect Tires Life Expectancy?

The questions “how many miles do tires last” and “how many miles should tires last” do not have one answer, as they rely on several different factors. Here are a few of the most important:

  • Type of tire: High-performance tires have extra grip, but tend to be softer and wear more quickly.
  • Treadwear rating: Your tires have an indicated treadwear rating which lets you know the life expectancy of your tire treads.
  • Drivetrain: Tires wear differently depending on whether your vehicle is front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, or all-wheel drive vehicles, as the drive wheels will typically wear more quickly.
  • Road conditions: If you regularly drive down gravel or dirt roads, or you often encounter construction, snow, salt, rain, and ice, your tires will wear more quickly. Furthermore, if you plan to use your vehicle for off-roading, they will also wear substantially faster.
  • Terrain: If you live in an area with steep inclines and declines, your tires require more force to start and stop your vehicle than it would on flat surfaces.
  • Driving habits: Having a lead foot on the gas and brakes will wear out your tires faster than accelerating gradually and letting coasting do some of the braking work.
  • Alignment: If your suspension alignment is out of spec, then your tires might be dragging along the pavement as you drive. This will cause substantial wear in a short period of time.

Tire Care Tips For Long-Lasting Tires

In addition to more cautious driving habits, there are a few things car owners in Gretna can do to extend the life of their tires:

  • Inspect for proper air pressure whenever you fill up with gas.
  • Take your vehicle in for regularly scheduled maintenance.
  • Regularly inspect tire tread depth for tire tread wear.
  • Rotate your tires for more even distribution of tire wear.
