What Factors Affect Tires Life Expectancy?

The questions “how many miles do tires last” and “how many miles should tires last” may have different answers, for a variety of reasons and factors.

  • Type of tire: High-performance tires have extra grip but may wear faster than all-season tires, which have less rolling resistance.
  • Treadwear rating: Your tires also come with a treadwear rating that rates the life expectancy of the tire treads.
  • 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.
  • 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 want to use your vehicle for off-roading, this will make a significant 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.
  • 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.

Tire Care Tips For Long-Lasting Tires

In addition to better, and more cautious driving habits, there are a few things car owners in Florence can do to extend the life of their tires:

  • Inspect for proper air pressure when you fill your gas tank, as many gas stations have tire inflation stations.
  • Regularly inspect tire tread depth for tire tread wear.
  • Rotate your tires for more even distribution of tire wear.
  • Take your vehicle in for regularly scheduled maintenance.
