How Many Miles Do Tires Last?

Volkswagen Tires

How many miles should tires last? If you have new tires directly from the automaker or you have recently purchased new high-quality replacement tires, you can expect them to last somewhere around 50,000 miles. Learn more about the factors that affect the lifespan of your tires as well as how to keep them in optimal condition for as long as possible. Jennings Volkswagen near Chicago has the details.

What Factors Affect Tire Life Expectancy?

The questions “how many miles do tires last” and “how many miles should tires last” will often have differing answers. There are several factors that can play a role in determining the lifespan of your tires.

  • Type of tire: You can expect a better grip from high-performance tires, but keep in mind that they often don’t last as long as all-season tires. All-season tires typically do not wear as quickly due to less rolling resistance.
  • Treadwear rating: Your tires should feature a treadwear rating. This will let you know how long the tires are expected to last.
  • Drivetrain: Because the drivetrain affects where the power is being sent, tire wear varies based on whether you have a front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, or all-wheel drive vehicle.
  • Road conditions: Do you do a lot of off-roading? Or, are you frequently driving through road construction or snowy weather conditions? If so, your tires may wear down more quickly.
  • Terrain: If you live in a hilly area, it will require more friction to start or stop your vehicle, which can affect tire wear as well.
  • Driving habits: Do you tend to brake hard or quickly? You may want to try coasting to a stop instead to prolong the life of your tires.

Helpful Tire Care Tips

If you are looking to improve the lifespan of your tires, there are a few simple ways to do so:

  • Check the air pressure of your tires each time you fill-up the tank. Many gas stations also have tire inflation stations, so if the pressure is a bit low, you can fill them up right there.
  • Keep an eye on the tread depth.
  • To help your tires wear as evenly as possible, schedule regular tire rotations.
  • Keep up with the recommended maintenance schedule for your vehicle.
