How Many Miles Do Tires Last?

Row of Tires

Everyday errands in Syosset, trips to work in Roslyn, and even fun day trips all add up to wear and tear on your tires. How many miles should tires last? Most experts say around 50,000 miles. Here are some things to know before it’s time to contact the tire center.

What Factors Affect Your Tires’ Life Expectancy?

Sometimes life–or a roofing nail in the Roslyn road–intervenes and you’ll see your tire warning light come on sooner than expected. Here are some less sudden things that can impact the life of your tires:

  • 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. Properly rotating your tires can help balance the wear.
  • 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.
  • Road conditions: If you have to drive on gravel or dirt roads regularly, or you encounter construction, and Jericho winter weather like snow, salt, and ice, your tires will take more of a beating. If you plan to use your vehicle for off-roading, this will make a big difference as well.
  • Terrain: If you live in an area with inclines on the roads, more friction on the tires is required to start and stop the vehicle than on flat surfaces.
  • Treadwear rating: Your tires also come with a treadwear rating which rates the life expectancy of the tire treads.
  • Type of tire: High performance tires have extra grip but may wear faster than all-season tires which have less rolling resistance–be sure to check your owner’s manual to see what tires you have on your vehicle, or what type is recommended.
