How Many Miles Do Tires Last?

Tires Stacked Up

When you buy new tires from the original equipment manufacturer for your new vehicle or you invest in high-quality replacement tires, they can be expected to last approximately 50,000 miles on Eugene roads. Learn more about tire life expectancy and gather some helpful tips to ensure you get as much out of your tires as possible with the auto service professionals at Clint Newell Chevrolet.

What Can Affect Tire Life Expectancy?

The answer to the questions “how many miles do tires last” and “how many miles should tires last” can have different answers, depending on numerous factors.

  • Tire Type: High-performance tires offer extra grip on Cottage Grove roads, but they’ll tend to wear out faster than all-season tires, which have less rolling resistance.
  • Treadwear Rating: All tires come with a treadwear rating that indicates the life expectancy of the tire treads.
  • Drivetrain: Whether your vehicle has front-wheel, rear-wheel, all-wheel, or four-wheel drive will cause the tires to wear differently, as the main power source for forward motion is different with each drivetrain.
  • Road Conditions: If you frequently drive on rough roads or encounter construction, snow, salt, rain, and ice, your tires are more susceptible to wear. Additionally, if you do a lot of off-roading, your tires may wear out much faster.
  • Terrain: Do you live in an area with a lot of inclines? Your tires require more friction to stop and start on hills, which can cause them to wear out faster than if you lived in an area with mostly flat roads.
  • Driving Habits: Ever been accused of having a lead foot? This can cause your tires to wear out faster – it’s best to accelerate gradually and coast to brake.

Get the Most Out of Your Tires with Tire Care Tips

Being more mindful of your driving habits can do wonders to increase your tires’ life expectancy, but there are other tips you can keep in mind to help:

  • When you’re filling up on gas, stop by the tire inflation station to check your tire pressure. Most gas stations have a free inflation station on-site if you need to air up a bit.
  • Check your tire tread depth on a regular basis for signs of tire tread wear.
  • Be sure to keep up with regular tire rotations and other routine maintenance.
