How Many Miles Do Tires Last?

Most new tires from the original equipment manufacturer and high-quality replacement tires can be expected to last approximately 50,000 miles. If you’d like to learn more about your vehicle’s specific tires or about what can affect tire life, check out our guide at University Mazda or contact our Albuquerque service centerwith any questions.

What Factors Affect Tires’ Life Expectancy?

Another important question to ask is “how many miles should tires last?” There are a few different factors that go into answering this question. These include:

  • 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, which 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 you encounter construction, snow, salt, rain, and ice, your tires will take more of a beating. If you plan to use your vehicle for off-roading, this will make a big 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

Cautious driving habits aside, there are a few more things that Farmington drivers and beyond can do to extend the life of their tires. Learn more about them and keep your tires in great condition for longer:

  • 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.
