What Factors Affect a Tire’s Life Expectancy?

How many miles do tires last and how many miles should tires last are two different answers. Both of them depend on a number of factors.

  • Type of tire: High-performance tires have extra grip but may wear faster than all-season tires which have less rolling resistance.
  • Treadwear rating: Your tires also come with a treadwear rating, which rates the life expectancy of the tire treads. Getting one with a lower rating can reduce the life of your tire.
  • Drivetrain: Tires wear differently on front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive vehicles, because of where the main power for forward motion comes from. This is where tire rotation comes into play, regular maintenance can extend the life of your tires.
  • Road conditions: If you have to drive on gravel or dirt roads regularly, these conditions can wear your tires faster. The same is true with construction sites, snow, salt, rain, and ice. If you plan to use your vehicle for off-roading, this will make a big difference to your tire life, too.
  • Terrain: If you live in an area with inclines on the roads, the tires will experience more friction because it takes more power to start and stop the vehicle compared to flat terrain.
  • Driving habits: Accelerating and decelerating quickly will wear out your tires faster than speeding up gradually and coasting to a stop.

Tire Care Tips For Long-Lasting Tires

In addition to more cautious driving habits, you can extend the life of your tires in Bayside with a few tips and tricks.

Take a look:

  • Inspect tires for proper air pressure when you fill your gas tank, as many gas stations have tire inflation stations. If they are low, inflate them to the proper pressure. If the problem persists, take your vehicle to a service center.
  • Regularly inspect tire tread depth for tire tread wear. Use a penny to check the tire tread depth.
  • Rotate your tires for more even distribution of tire wear. Our service center can help with this.
  • Take your vehicle in for regularly scheduled maintenance. A tire inspection is part of regular maintenance.
