How Many Miles Do Tires Last?

Tire Change

Typically, when looking at genuine OEM tires or high-quality replacement tires for new or pre-owned vehicles, shoppers can expect to get about 50,000 miles before needing a new set. The caveat is, of course, that the tires must be properly cared for during this time. Learn more about factors impacting your tire life span, and how to make the most of your tires below!



What Factors Impact How Long Tires Last?

Drivers will find that the answers to the questions, “how many miles do tires last” and “how many miles should tires last” may be different, depending on a number of factors.

  • Tire Type: All-season tires usually have a longer life as they have less rolling resistance. High performance tires, on the other hand, offer stronger grip but tend to wear faster.
  • Treadwear Rating: All tires come with a treadwear rating. That rating indicates the life expectancy of the tire treads.
  • Drivetrain: Tires will wear differently depending if your vehicle is front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, or all-wheel drive. This is because the drivetrains disperse engine power differently between the tires.
  • Driving Conditions: If you frequently drive on gravel or dirt roads, or you encounter construction, snow, salt, rain, and ice, those conditions will impact your tires.
  • Off-Roading: Building on the point above, if you intend to use your tires off-roading, this will make a big difference as well.
  • Terrain: Hilly or mountainous terrain creates more friction on the tires when starting and stopping than flat surfaces.
  • How You Drive: Hitting the gas and brakes suddenly will wear out your tires faster than accelerating slowly and coasting to a stop.

Tips to Increase How Long Tires Last

Along with more cautious driving habits, Oregon City drivers can take a few extra steps to preserve the life of their tires, including:

  • Maintain proper air pressure
  • Inspect tire tread depth
  • Rotate your tires
  • Keep up with regularly scheduled maintenance
