How Many Miles Do Tires Last?

Close up of tire tread

In general, you can expect your original tires or high-quality replacement tires to last approximately 50,000 miles. However, there are a few factors that can affect this interval. Bob Moore Auto Group near Oklahoma City and Tulsa has the details on how many miles should tires last and how to take care of your tires and your vehicle maintenance

What Can Affect the Lifespan of Your Tires? 

The questions “how many miles do tires last” and “how many miles should tires last” can have varying answers for several reasons. Below are just a few of the factors that can cause your tires to wear at different rates. 

  • Type of tire: High-performance tires have extra grip but this rolling resistance can cause them to wear down more quickly than all-season tires. 
  • Treadwear rating: Your tires also come with a treadwear rating that rates the life expectancy of the tire treads.
  • Drivetrain: Your drivetrain determines where a majority of power is sent. This, in turn, affects the longevity of your tires because they wear differently. 
  • Road conditions: If you have to drive on gravel or dirt roads regularly, or you encounter construction, snow, salt, rain, and ice, your tires will take more of a beating. If you like to take your vehicle on off-road adventures around Dallas, you can also expect to replace your tires more frequently. 
  • Terrain: Did you know that driving in a hilly area of in a location with a lot of inclines can cause your tires to wear down sooner? This is because of friction.
  • Driving habits: If you press harder on the gas and brakes rather than gradually accelerating or coasting to a stop, this behavior is harsher on your tires. 

Tire Care Tips to Save You Money

If you are looking to extend the life of your tires so you do not have to replace them as often, there are a few simple steps you can take. 

  • When you stop to fill up the tank, it is a good time to also check your tire pressure. Many gas stations have tire inflation stations, so if your tires need more air, you can fill them right away.
  • Consistently check the tread depth of your tires.
  • To keep your tires from wearing down at different rates, it is important to have your tires rotated at the proper interval.
  • Take your vehicle in for regularly scheduled maintenance.
