How Many Miles Do Tires Last?

Car tire
Wondering how long you can expect to get out of your car’s set of tires? Generally, tires from the OEM or high-quality replacement tires will last somewhere around 50,000 miles. However, keep in mind that your driving habits and other factors can also affect how long your tires will last. Robert Basil Cadillac has the details.

Factors That Affect Tire Life Expectancy

How many miles do tires last, and how many miles should tires last? The answers to these questions can vary quite significantly. Below, you will find a few of the factors that affect tire life expectancy:

  • Type of tire: High-performance tires offer the benefit of extra grip, but the tradeoff is that they often wear faster than all-season tires. All-season tires have less rolling resistance.
  • Treadwear rating: The treadwear rating gives you an idea of the life expectancy of the tire treads.
  • Drivetrain: The drivetrain of your vehicle affects tire lifespan because the tires that receive the majority of the power from the engine wear down faster than the rest of the tires.
  • Road conditions: Constantly driving on gravel or dirt roads or dealing with harsh weather conditions can be taxing on your tires. So is frequent off-roading.
  • Terrain: Driving in a hilly area can also be stressful on your tires. This is because more friction on the tires is required to start and stop the vehicle than what’s needed on flat surfaces.
  • Driving habits: Braking abruptly or having a lead foot on the gas will wear out your tires faster. Accelerating gradually or coasting to a stop when possible is recommended.

Helpful Tire Care Tips

Looking for other ways to extend the lifespan of your tires? Here are a few easy tire care tips to follow:

  • Keep tabs on the air pressure of your tires. Over- or under-inflated tires wear down more rapidly.
  • Regularly inspect tire tread depth and check for excess tire tread wear.
  • Rotate your tires to ensure they wear as evenly as possible.
  • Keep up with routine vehicle maintenance.
