What Factors Affect Tires Life Expectancy? 

“How many miles do tires last” and “how many miles should tires last” will have different answers depending on several factors, such as: 

  • 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.
  • Driving habits: Having a lead foot on the gas and brakes wears 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 encounter construction, snow, salt, rain, and ice, your tires will take more of a beating. If you do a lot of off-roading, this also makes a significant difference.
  • 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 that rates the life expectancy of the tire treads.
  • Type of tire: High-performance tires have extra grip but will wear faster than all-season tires that have less rolling resistance.

  • Rotate your tiresfor more even distribution of tire wear.
