How Many Miles Do Tires Last?

Row of tires

Most new tires and high-quality replacement tires can be expected to last somewhere around 50,000 miles in ideal conditions. But how many miles do tires last in other conditions? Find out more about what impacts tire life expectancy with Scott Evans Nissan, then contact our Newnan-area service center if you have any additional questions. 

Factors That Affect Tire Life Expectancy

We’re often asked by Douglasville and Villa Rica drivers, “how many miles do tires last?” A better way to ask this question is “how many miles should tires last?” After all, it’s important to keep in mind that there are many factors at play that impact the answers to these questions, such as:

    • Tire Type: While high-performance tires have extra grip on Carrollton roads, they may deteriorate faster than all-season tires that have less resistance. 
  • Conditions of Roads: If you regularly drive on gravel or dirt roads, or you often encounter construction and varying weather conditions like snow, rain, and ice, this will heavily impact your tires. If you intend on using your vehicle for off-roading, this will wear out your tires as well. 
    • Treadwear Rating: Your tires come with a treadwear rating that rates the life expectancy of your tire treads. You can find the treadwear rating engraved on the side of the tires. 
    • Drivetrain: AWD, RWD, and FWD vehicle tires all wear differently because of where the engine power for forwarding motion ends up.
    • Terrain: If you live in an area with a lot of slopes and inclines, your tires will likely endure more friction and won’t last as long as others with less rigorous terrain.
  • Driving Habits: Do you have a heavy foot when pressing on the gas and brakes? This will wear out your tires faster than gradually accelerating and coasting to a stop. 

Tips for Maintaining Your Tires for the Long Haul

In addition to being conscientious of your driving habits, here are a few things you can do to prolong the life of your tires:

  • Take your vehicle for regularly scheduled maintenance.
  • When stopping at the gas station, quickly check for proper air pressure. 
  • Regularly inspect tire tread depth for tire tread wear.
  • Rotate your tires on a regular basis for more even distribution of tire wear.
